I have been here many times in my life, and I remember it surprising me the first time I came, as I didn't expect much from a small town old west museum. It is a very nice museum featuring both permanent exhibits and rotating local exhibits (such as artists or quilts.) I did not expect the museum to have so... More

...Because we became friends of the director, Cova Williams. But even this is plenty of signification, since we had not met Cova ever before...Nice.

This is a much better experience that you might expect in a small town. The theater (with effects) and the explanations of the Chisholm trail are excellent. (Chisholm was not the cattle owner and did not look like John Wayne). There is also quite a good art gallery

I drove 30 miles out of my way (from Hwy 281) to see this museum and it did not disappoint me! Interactive displays were fun for all ages. The IMAX-type film was super fun! It was all educational as well as fun! The art gallery with original paintings & sculpture was awesome. I have never seem Russell and Remington works... More

Once you enter the drive it seems to be big in size and maybe like you could spend the whole day there. Upon entering you realize after you pay that there is little to do. At the beginning you see a display of a prairie that you would see out in oklahoma. There is various stuffed wildlife on this display... More

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.
