In this case, the name says it all – this district is full of adventure for the whole family. From the can’t-miss National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum, to the rush of live horseracing at Remington Park Racing Casino, to visiting Oklahoma City’s wildest residents at the Oklahoma City Zoo and Botanical Gardens, there’s plenty of fun for the young and young at heart.
Located in the southwest section of the Oklahoma City Zoo, Sanctuary Asia opened August 2018 and extends the Asian elephant herd’s existing habitat as well creates new habitats for red pandas, Indian rhinos, langurs, Komodo dragons, Tanuki (raccoon dog) and cassowary birds. The expansion also includes a two-story restaurant with a view into the elephant, rhino and Komodo dragon habitats plus a splash zone in the courtyard for children to experience during the warmer months.
Go all in with the OKC Zoo's Wild Encounters experiences. Get a behind-the-scenes look with an animal caretaker to get an up close look at some of the Zoo's amazing animals.
In addition to its world-class art, this museum is also home to historical and pop culture artifacts, cowboy gear, firearms and a great gift shop.
Kids of all ages will love exploring eight acres of hands-on science experiences with thousands of space, aviation and cultural artifacts in the mix. This is especially true in their new "CurioCity" exhibit, a 20,000-square-foot area of discovery that uses interactive devices and creative settings to encourage learning through play.
Of course, the guide above is just a sampling of what there is to taste, see and do in the district.
