National Weather Museum & Science Center

Founded: 2007
If you don’t like the weather in Oklahoma, just wait 20 minutes. We all groan at this statement, but any Okie knows that it could very well be true on any given day. The National Weather Museum & Science Center hopes to educate the state and nation on Oklahoma’s unique climate and weather events.

“Our mission is to preserve the rich history of our nation’s weather and climate enterprise and provide a state-of-the-art education and technology learning environment to persons of all ages,” says Doug Forsyth, CEO of the museum.

With three phases planned, the ultimate to build a state-of-the-art museum, the National Weather Museum & Science Center is still in Phase I as a traveling museum.
