At Leonardo's we enrich and inspire children of all ages by creating fun learning opportunities. Beginning April 30th, 2016 Leonardo's will re-open with it's Grand Re-Opening Celebration! The museum will feature tons of new hands-on exhibits including the Power Tower that highlights Oklahoma's role in powering the nation. Leonardo's is also home to a World Record holding playground where families can relax and enjoy their picnic lunches! Children will learn and explore while they play here at Leonardo's, so please come visit! We'd love to have you!
We used a museum network membership to visit Leonardo's. The building appears to
be a historic building that is freshly remodeled. The place isn't huge, but our young children had a great time! It was too hot to visit the huge outdoor playground, but we hope to return and visit it in the future.

Simply amazed by the number of Locomotives, Freight cars, Passenger cars and Cabooses there are to see, especially the ones you have access too. While there make sure to see their wonderful Model Railroad. The gentleman there is very knowledgeable about both local railroads and the model Railroad hobby. Our group thoroughly enjoyed all there is to see.

You will not want to miss this tremendous American heritage display. In addition to a wonderful museum there are four historically significant buildings in the Heritage Village. The best was the 1893 U.S. Land Run Office. The guided tour was well worth the cost. Discounts are given for seniors and military. The guide was very knowledgeable. Great adventure for the entire family. A must see, one-of-a-kind!

Very nice facility. Well maintained, good amount of ladies rooms! Entrance needs some improvements for a larger crowd. Security was friendly. Finding seats wasn't ideal, but again for a smaller venue, we figured it out! Maybe having a few well placed volunteers for seating assistance would be helpful. Concessions were apparently somewhere? Beer/water etc. easily accessible. Parking was typical, no one directing.. so a little patience with getting out, but really easy and we were out in 5-7 minutes tops. Highly recommend this location for touring entertainment.

It was a delightful experience! I attended with a friend and the only complaint would have been the time. It started at 8pm and was nearly 11p.m when it ended. My friend and I would have appreciated an earlier start so it wasn’t so late getting home.

We've taken all our grandkids to see this museum and they've loved it. We could point out "old timey" things and explain them so they'd understand what they were and what they were used for. The owners are very friendly and will answer questions. We had them watch one of the movies before we went and then they would recognize scenes/sets from the movie and were very impressed! And best of all - it's FREE!!!!

This is one of the newest murals in downtown Enid. It is a multi-color butterfly. When we were there, we found a mother using it as a backdrop for a family picture. It is called the Butterfly project

Neat place to tour for all ages ! They have very unique things inside. It is free & runs by donations. I took my 2 grandkids ages 6 and 8 and they enjoyed it. Tour guides were really interesting & told lots of facts about things there.
