Kirsten Therkelson

Manager of Museum Education

  • 405.523.3231
  • Kirsten joined the Education team at the Oklahoma Hall of Fame in October of 2021 as their Outreach Coordinator before being promoted to the role of Manager of Museum Education one short month later. She currently oversees in-person programs and Free Family Fun days, and serves as contact for museum field trips.

    Kirsten is a proud sixth-generation Okie and University of Oklahoma alum with a Bachelor of Arts from the Department of Classics and Letters. Prior to joining Oklahoma Hall of Fame’s team, she spent nearly six years with Science Museum Oklahoma as an educator, designing both virtual and in-person curriculum and activities, overseeing the Science Overnights and Scouting programs, and generally wearing many hats, sometimes literally.

    In her free time, Kirsten enjoys baking, watching horror films, and spending time with her partner Griffin and their (quite large) German Shepherd, Russell.
