"Science Museum Oklahoma is a fantastic venue to host an event! The Infant Crisis Services Young Professionals Board thoroughly enjoyed working with the Science Museum Oklahoma staff to plan, implement, hand host Bingo for Babies in such a unique space. Our decision to have our event at SMO came down to cost, plenty of space and parking available, and a fun environment in a central location. Science Museum Oklahoma perfectly met all of our criteria and were extremely accommodating. We look forward to hosting future events at Science Museum Oklahoma.”
