It’s an exciting day in Tulsa. The new Discovery Lab children's museum will open to the public on Monday.

Children will be able to explore exhibits such as the HydroLab, Math + Music, Energy, Ballapalooza, the Imaginarium and the “Taj Mahal” of tape tunnels. Included are the high facilitation areas: The WorkShop, Science Lab and Little Lab, for little learners.
