I overheard a lady talking about going to the movies at the Myriad Gardens so I had to get some more information. Look at all the fun activities I found for you and your family to do at the Myriad Gardens! Oklahoma City has new and exciting events going on all the time, I just never take the time to search for them. So here they are for you to put in your planner! See you there!
Due to extreme heat the Scientific Sunday program is on hold until September. Classes listed below will be held.
Ongoing through September 9
