An Overview of the Jasmine Moran Children’s Museum
With a juris doctor from the University of Texas School of Law, Duke Ligon has worked in the oil and gas industry in both Washington, D.C., and Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, since 1971. Currently the owner and manager of Mekusukey Oil Company, LLC, Duke Ligon has also served as the general counsel and senior vice president of Oklahoma City’s Devon Energy, and is on the board of directors of the Jasmine Moran Children’s Museum.
Part of the Oklahoma Museum Network and a member of the Oklahoma Museums Association, the Jasmine Moran Children’s Museum is located in Seminole, Oklahoma. Open to the public, groups, and available for private events, the museum took four years from the first fundraising call until the first visitor walked through its doors. The Jasmine Moran Children’s Museum is based on an imaginary town, allowing visitors to experience a wide range of environments and career settings.
With areas ranging from construction sites and dentist offices to a television station and a court house, the Jasmine Moran Children’s Museum has something for every child who visits. Each area has several full-size or child-sized interactive elements to give visitors hands-on experience, like a fire truck and sliding pole at the fire station. Other activities include a climbing area, a maze, and train ride.
