New to the Oklahoma Hall of Fame: Virtual Summer Thursdays! Join the Oklahoma Hall of Fame educators each Thursday this summer as we tell Oklahoma's story through its people and virtually participate together in story time, crafts, with fun partner activities and demonstrations. Virtual Summer Thursdays are family-friendly and fun for all ages.

To experience Virtual Summer Thursdays, register here, or through the secure link on each themed day and you will receive a confirmation email that explains the day's program, provide link to Zoom call and virtual background, and confirms craft supply pick-up. You must register no later than two business days in advance to receive program instructions and materials when applicable. This will ensure you all the tools for an awesome Virtual Summer Thursday at the Oklahoma Hall of Fame!

Thursdays, 10:30-11:30 am – Time for Stories, Dress Up, and Crafts! Join us via Zoom for an exciting virtual story time as we read a book connected with the theme. We encourage kids and grown ups to dress up to celebrate the theme! We’ll send you a fun Zoom background to complete the experience. Following story time, stay on the Zoom conference, and we’ll create a fun, simple craft inspired by the theme. You can pick up a FREE craft kit from the Museum or order supplies from our online list.

Thursdays, 2:00-2:30 pm – Oklahomans are Amazing! Join us via Zoom as we meet amazing Oklahomans and learn more about their adventures. Corresponding with the Summer Thursday themes, musicians, dancers, race car drivers, comic book illustrators and other incredible Oklahomans will join us to share their talents and answer your questions!

Summer Thursdays are made possible by The Chickasaw Nation and the Inasmuch Foundation.
