About Us

Young ExplorerWe are a non-profit organization that is staffed by one part-time employee and numerous volunteers. The center is guided by a board of education.

While we cater to many schools for field trips, individuals are welcome to join the fun. We are available by appointment only. We will find a spot for you. Request a tour online at BOOK A TOUR.  Be sure and check the online tour calendar for availability.

We have been in existence for over 17 years. During the first 9 years, the center was located and supported by the Society of Exploration Geophysicists in Tulsa. During the last 6 years, it has been a project of Energy America Educational Institute, Inc., an Oklahoma Corporation with 501 c 3 tax status.

The center presently occupies over 4,000 sq ft in downtown Tulsa, donated by Price Family Properties. Many of our volunteers are retired geoscientists, along with college and high school interns.

Each room in the center is devoted to a hands-on geoscience activity such as rock and mineral identification, fossil identification, earthquakes, petroleum products, fluorescent activity, and our famous fossil and gold mine dig. Each activity lasts for 15-25 minutes. We will cover as many activities as we can. Tours generally last around 2 hours.


The Tulsa Geoscience Center is only 1 of 12 accredited sites in Oklahoma by the Oklahoma Energy Resources Board. OERB offers sponsored visits to our center as well as the other accredited organizations, check out OERB Homeroom for more information.

A Birthday Party that ROCKS

Have your birthday party with us here at the TGC. Each party will get an hour tour guided by the Director. During this tour, we will make a fossil imprint, dig for fossils & gold, get a UV tattoo and visit GeoCentral, our gift shop. The party will last about 2 hours or longer.
