Resources for Museums


We know that visiting a museum in person is preferable and an awesome experience. But during this time of COVID-19 social distancing, quarantine and shut-down, when it is not possible to visit, many Oklahoma museums have been creative in bringing their museums to you through a variety of virtual programs and engagements.  You can find the growing list of #MuseumsFromHome activities here.
