Curbside science offered at Science Museum Oklahoma; museum working toward June reopening
Science Museum Oklahoma is offering new ways to explore, learn and play at home with drive-up, curbside service from its museum store, The Science Shop. All curbside purchases will include a pass to return to the museum when it museum reopens.
“Since closing our doors in March — what should’ve been the busiest time of our year — we’ve been touched by messages of support from our community. We’re excited to give families a chance to support the museum in a tangible way and shop the museum store even as we remain closed,” said Sherry Marshall, president and CEO of Science Museum Oklahoma.
The Science Shop staff will debut a selection of items weekly — a new collection of items will be announced each Saturday with purchases beginning that day for the following week. Items can be bought online for in-person, drive-up pick up while supplies last — all pick-ups will be from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Mondays through Fridays at the museum, 2020 Remington Place.
This week's items include a magnet building set for young scientists, cake making sets in unicorn, dinosaur and space themes, the Bananagrams game, a marble track set, a kinetic sandbox kit, a 500-piece secret garden puzzle, train sets, a doodling robot, a tabletop volcano, and more. Prices start at $10.99, and a full item description and links to purchase can be found at www.sciencemuseumok.org/the-science-shop.
Shoppers will receive an email when their order is ready and can call The Science Shop at 405-602-3690 when they arrive to have their order carried out to their vehicle. No coupons can be accepted at this time. Science Museum Oklahoma remains temporarily closed to stem the spread of COVID-19, and shoppers will not be able to enter the museum.
Science Museum Oklahoma is currently working toward a June reopening and is enrolling for summer camps online at www.sciencemuseumok.org/summer-camps.
