We went to the Chisholm Trail Heritage Center on our way home from a winter in Arizona. I wished we had been able to have our grandkids with us. The two shows were so much fun. We felt the wind, rain, thunder and more just like the cowboys on the trail. The show presented a realistic view of what life... More

This center takes you back to time where you feel like an integral member of the trail. Nice experience. I love the effects in the 15 minutes cinemas. Superb. Don't visit Duncan without coming here.

Outstanding museum in southwest Oklahoma, perfect for all ages and family members, especially if they are interested in western heritage, culture or American history in general. Our docent was wonderful, very helpful, engaging and knowledgable. The theaters were great as well -- unique and a lot of fun. I also enjoyed the interactive displays that tested how well you would... More

This museum entertained my whole family aging from 2 to 50 years of age for 2+ hours. It is a hands on museum about cowboy life. They have a great show that takes you on a cattle drive, you see, feel hear and smell life on the trail. It was a great place.

We had the opportunity to visit the center on 6/8 and were very surprised at the professional job they did with the movies and animation. The movies are very realistic and although I do not want to give away the surprise of feeling so "in the movie", you will love it. The art work is also exceptional and for those... More

The life of a cowboy was not a glamorous one. Sleeping on the ground, eating the same bad food for days on end, hard work all day long. This is what the cowpoke faced to earn only decent pay, driving cattle north into Kansas along the Chisholm Trail. This route ran through the town of Duncan. I drove to the... More

We never expected this tour to be as good as it was. The movie of the trail was so awesome, I have never seen one like this. When they cooked on the film you smelled it, you also smelled the dust storm, felt the cold wind and rain. Felt the rattle of the snake and the stampede. We had a... More

I just loved my visit to the Chisholm Trail Heritage Center. I liked the theater with the robotic cowboys and the movie was excellent, as was the art gallery. The next time I am in the area I would like to visit it again.

There is nothing spectacular about the "attraction." The museum is primitive and doesn't have much to it. There's a theater with robotic cowboys, which is alright but will keep that chant stuck in your head for a while. The statues outside are the best part, which is not really part of the museum. It's a tourist trap.
