Anyone with a child knows the importance of hands-on activities in order for children to learn. The Jasmine Moran Children's Museum in Seminole offers the unique experience for children of all ages to dress up as an adult and pretend to be everything from a surgeon to a pilot in order to see what interests them.
Children will be exposed to a variety of careers including news anchor, nurse, painter, engineers, judge, attorney, fireman, supermarket cashier, scientist, dentist, archeologist and construction worker. There are also plenty of hands-on activities that don't involve the workforce like duck races, a bubble factory, the Jasmine Ark and Playground Towers and a 16-foot climbing labyrinth that has a total of five miles of cable and 15,000 connecting hooks.
The Jasmine Moran Children's Museum also offers additional displays like the Handicapable exhibit, which allows children to experience what it's like to use crutches, a wheelchair and a brailler, the Oklahoma fish exhibit, the Minds-On-Fun exhibit, which teaches children about kinetic energy and sound, and Safety Town, which is a mini-community where children are taught the importance of bicycle and pedestrian safety.
Outdoor activities include a half-mile ride on the SuperSONIC Express train to view Seminole's beautiful landscape complete with statuary, ducks, swans, geese and turtles. A newly completed, 12,000 square foot outdoor castle maze is also open, allowing children to test their sense of direction and memory. Children will have so much fun, they won't even know that they're learning.
