Sample Artifacts

Help support the education of weather science and safety through our exhibits. We are in need of volunteers to help take admissions and check guests in at the front desk and also docents to help with answering questions or giving tours. We have an augmented reality system that allows for guests to take a completely immersive self guided tour, so this volunteer opportunity can be as little or as much as you wish!

About THE NATIONAL WEATHER MUSEUM AND SCIENCE CENTER

Location:

1200 W ROCK CREEK RD STE B, NORMAN, OK 73069, US

Mission Statement

We are dedicated to the preservation of weather artifacts, education in weather safety and innovations, and bringing the community together through the connection of science.

Description

The National Weather Museum and Science Center (NWMSC) is dedicated to preserving the rich history of meteorology through its ever-expanding collection of artifacts, including one recently featured in "Mysteries at the Museum" on The Travel Channel; as well as providing a resource for teaching the science behind weather phenomena, latest developments in prediction technology, and best practices for weather safety. Tornadoes, hurricanes, floods, and heat waves ravage our Earth every year, resulting in thousands of casualties, billions of dollars in damage, and disruption of trade and industry. Yet the public’s understanding of weather, its impact, and the science and application of forecasting technologies is woefully deficient. Through its weather education curriculum, virtual science exhibits, and mobile Weather Museum that travels to schools and events in the community, the NWMSC hopes to fill this void by promoting scientific literacy in a "classroom" that surrounds us every day.
