Open daily, you can check the times. I was very intrigued by all the different information that was presented. So much about our history here in Southwest Oklahoma, from the large cattle drives along the Chisholm Trail, to just the people be brave enough to settle in Indian Country. A must see if in Duncan, OK

Very friendly and helpful. Grounds and the interior were in excellent condition. Many exhibits were interactive. The film is a must and you need to prepare for surprises. This a must stop when in Duncan. It is free but you may donate. I felt that a donation was necessary to help them keep up the good work. It is child... More

This is an amazing center putting people into the experience of being a traveler on the Chisholm trail many years ago. There is a special experiential large-screened movie that puts you into reality with wind and rain upon you. There is a special audio-animatronics theater designed by the ones who Disney uses that presents a trail hand talking to Chisholm... More

Great film makes you feel like you're experiencing a cattle drive, and an activity room actually allows you to practice roping a steer or managing a cattle drive. Very helpful and friendly staff as well.

From the interactive movie and animatronic show to all the hands-on exhibits, the story of the Chisholm is well presented and should be well received by children. Since we're not into art, and the weather was threatening, we did not visit the gallery.

My girls love to come here! We bought a membership so we can come anytime! They have a great play area for the kids and they absolutely love the two interactive movies you can watch! I was thrilled to discover this treasure in Duncan❤️

This was a really interesting yet small museum. I particularly enjoyed the movie. The interactive section was fun especially being the trail boss. Several groups of school children were there and I got a real kick out of their questions and excitement. Well done.

Great Museum for all ages. The children loved all the interactive things there was to do. The movie was exciting, the extra effects made it feel like you were right there, driving the Long Horns!
