TULSA, Okla. — The final push is on to complete Tulsa’s new $52 million Children’s Museum Discovery Lab.

The original Discovery Lab in Owen Park will be closing at the end of October, and the new museum is on track to open by the end of the year.

“This is a gift to Tulsa — this is a labor of love and something that we are so ready to share,” says Discovery Lab Director of Exhibits, Lynnsey Childress-Wimp.

For the past year and a half, construction has been underway on the new building at 31st and Riverside near the Gathering Place, and that work should wrap up in about a month.
