I visited this museum with my father, just to see what it was about (I LOVE museums) and I was pleasantly surprised to see such a huge collection of historical firearms! It was a lot of fun, very educational, and just huge!

It doesn't look like much from the outside, but when you walk into this museum, it's absolutely incredible. You can spend several hours browsing and not get through it. I have law enforcement relatives I took there and they couldn't believe it. It's free, but donations are appreciated. And they have a cute little gift shop. I drop in all... More

We decided to go back to finish seeing all this museum had to offer. Our first visit was for two hours and we saw lots of interesting material - from guns, swords, horns, gunsmith shop to the burial vaults of Mr & Mrs Davis. Then we went to lunch and on to other sights. Here it is weeks later and... More

If you a gun person plan on this being a day trip. This place is run by the State of Oklahoma. You can tour it for about a donation of $5. Well worth it for sure. They really should charge more. Very friendly staff. We were greeted at the door and given a brief history. That's enough to hook you.... More

Not only will you men have a good time here, but so will the ladies. A lot of history to enjoy. Every war, and every year of history to work in. Best to take 2 days to see it all.

Of course if you are into guns and knives this is fascinating but there is so much more in the museum. Well worth an afternoon in Claremore!

Davis Museum. Although the museum's main feature was guns there were also other items to look at such as a collection of... More

HHmmm! Me at a gun museum? I thought the wife said "Gum Museum!" Well anyway this is an amazing place- any type of gun you could ever imagine is here from the tiniest Derringer type to a pretty hefty anti-tank "rifle". Their are beer steins, stuffed birds WWI posters and photographs of Ike and Adolf and Winston in their WWI... More

This is a MUST SEE, museum! World-class collection in small-town Claremore, OK. My favorite exhibit is the cap gun collection. Brings out my inner-child and fulfills my passion for hunting rifles. On the darker side, they have a great exhibit about Oklahoma Highway Patrol and Oklahoma's infamous outlaws, hangings and more!
