Building for their future

Discovery Lab has come a long way since its humble beginnings in 2007 as a museum without walls, then called the Tulsa Children’s Museum. In 2013, it found a more permanent home in the vacant Owen Park recreation center.

Now, 15 years later, the once nomadic science show is upgrading to a $52 million architectural masterpiece at East 31st Street and Riverside Drive.

Ray Vandiver, longtime executive director of Discovery Lab, is excited for Tulsans to finally experience a vision come to life.
