Oklahoma City is filled with family-friendly attractions and events during Spring Break. Yet these 5 things can ONLY be found in Oklahoma City.

Oklahoma City is home to America’s only skeleton museum, Museum of Osteology. Pretend to have x-ray vision as you explore the museum’s skulls and skeletons. You’ll find over 300 skeletons here, from the smallest rodent to a 40 foot Humpback Whale. During Spring Break, the museum is offering specially themed STEM classes plus Forensic Day and Night events. Each provides “hands-on” activities, special presentations and more.
Have you ridden the OKC Streetcar yet? Spring Break is a great time to ride and explore the city. The streetcar loops through all the downtown Oklahoma City neighborhoods. Park near a station and hop on. Visit the Myriad Botanical Gardens downtown for one of the scheduled “Spring Break Pop-Ins” or just stroll this lovely downtown park. Are you a Jim Henson and Muppets fan? Head to Bricktown and visit the Jim Henson – Life and Legacy exhibit at the American Banjo Museum.
