Jasmine Moran Children’s Museum – Seminole, OK

A place to let our kid’s imagination run wild.  Jasmine Moran Children’s Museum is one of the largest children’s museums that we have ever been to.  The place is massive.  42,000 square feet of indoor interactive space to explore as well as a large outdoor play area the Jasmine Moran Children’s Museum was the perfect place to let our two girls burn off their extra energy.  A bit out of the way.  However, if you have kids 10 or under they will thank you for taking them to Seminole, Oklahoma.
Diggin up Bones
I was really blown away with the amount and variety of exhibits on display.  Just about every dress up opportunity for the kiddos was there.  Our children pretended to be pilots, fire fighters, engineers, meteorologist and doctors just to name a few.  Besides the many career-based exhibits they also had art, math, and science areas to stimulate the mind.  Very hands on experiences were found in every corner of the place.  Though we were there for a good 4 hours we left still not getting to explore the whole place.
little Shopper
Indoors the Jasmine Moran Children’s Museum is divided up into what we would describe as four main areas.  A natural area with a dinosaur dig sand pit, a large freshwater fish tank, and minerals on display.  A large career imagination area.  Jobs from auto mechanic to dentistry. A great area for the kids to imagine the future.  This area also had a nice size pretend grocery store which was a big hit with my girls.  They also have a traveling exhibit area.  The last zone was a play and splash zone.  A large water table with channels and lifts to move the water and a large complex climbing apparatus and slide.  Like I said this place had a little bit of everything.
Listen Up Class
Our girls loved it.  Both under 5 they appreciate the chance just to explore.  Older kids and adults might find some of the exhibits dated, but we were pleasantly surprised that everything was in working order.  A tough task in a hands-on museum.  The Jasmine Moran Museum was an incredible find for us and our children.  A place that would be right at home in much larger cities.  Though I am glad that it is not.  Children’s museum sometimes get a little too full for our taste.
Flight Control
After exploring the inside make sure you head outside and take in their outdoor exhibits.  For an extra fee, you can take a ride on the Super Sonic Expressway.  We did not partake.  The train runs for a half mile of track including around their pond and nature park.  There is also a miniature town, two playground areas, and a castle maze.  The girls had a blast in the maze and its unique entrance down a slide.  Parenting tip… Have a parent at the bottom of the slide before the kids go down.  Our two-year-old took off like a rocket going underneath the maze walls.  I followed her teasing laugh as she thought she was getting away.  After catching up we made our way out.
Our visit took place during a weekday while most kids were still in school.  Early enough into the second semester of school that most schools would not be on a field trip.  We basically had the whole place to ourselves.  Could not have asked for a better experience for our two little girls.  The staff was super friendly, our girls got to explore to their hearts content, and no cutting, bumping, rude, or too busy with my smartphone parents to be a parent to ruin our time.  A great day at a great place.
