Mission Statement

The mission of Tulsa Children's Museum is to inspire children, connect families, and build community through exploration, exhibits, programming, and play.

Description

Tulsa Children's Museum's (TCM) newly opened Discovery Lab provides unique learning experiences, exhibits, and programming for children- middle school and younger, their parents, caregivers, and teachers. Discovery Lab's hands-on, multi-disciplinary approach will emphasize cognitive and process skills while extending and enriching classroom curriculum and common-core standards. TCM will build on children's interests and strengths while helping to prepare them for the future.

All exhibits and learning experiences will engage visitors in 21st Century Skills - the kind most associated with academic aptitude as developed by a team of experts from the National Academy of Science. These skills include creativity and innovation, critical thinking and problem solving, and communication and collaboration. In addition, TCM is committed to the integration of art, science, technology, engineering, and math (STEAM). Best practice curriculum embeds these concepts and principles into exhibits and programs encouraging children to connect and reconnect arts and sciences in ways that make learning engaging, challenging and fun.
