HAR-BER VILLAGE MUSEUM is a seasonal (March 15-November 15) pioneer-era village and history museum located on the shores of Grand Lake o' the Cherokees in Oklahoma. Visitors experience the area's history and ecology through self-guided tours. Antiques, collectibles and reproductions are displayed in exhibitions representing the mid-1800s to the early 1900s in the local four-state region (Oklahoma, Arkansas, Missouri and Kansas). Several of the Village's HISTORIC BUILDINGS were relocated to the grounds, including a schoolhouse, jail and 16 log cabins. Other log structures were built to house collections and are typical for the mid-to-late 1800s-a courthouse, a bank, a stagecoach inn and a church built with bricks hand-made before the Civil War. Other replicated buildings include a mercantile, jail and hanging gallows, a doctor's and a dentist's office, print shop, post office, drug store and more. Haven't been to Har-Ber Village in a while? EXHIBITS have been recently renovated and/or relocated, HANDS-ON ACTIVITY STATIONS added (Kid's Cabin, Nursery, School, Jail, Saloon), and frequent WORKSHOPS, events and historic craft and trade demonstrations have become a part of Har-Ber Village's offerings (blacksmith DEMONSTRATIONS, spinning and weaving demonstrations and historic craft WORKSHOPS.

My husband and I take our kids to Har-Ber village every year and we also love going to Christmas on main street in December. It's an inexpensive and fun way to please the whole family.

If you are into old stuff, this place is for you. It's pretty amazing to think that it was all gathered by a couple who started it out as a hobby. From old dentist's tools to an old post office to more dolls than I thought I would ever see to old uniforms to...you name it. I'm not sure how... More

The Village is comprised of many small cabins and structures that contain items that were used in everyday life in the early 1900s in the Northeast Oklahoma. Take in all of antiques while enjoying the beautiful views of Grand Lake. They also have various special events... More

We visited Har-ber Village today. We were aware that it focused on portraying the past in a nostalgic way. The attraction is, in fact, very large. There are over 100 "exhibits," each containing a large number of artifacts. Some of the exhibits feature a log cabin home, a doctor's office, a dentist's office, etc. Others deal with farm implements, clothing,... More

We went with our 80 year old friends, they are regulars, our first. We will be visiting again. The whole setting is eleclatic, I felt as if I had just stepped into the past. The grounds are very well kept, plenty of seating outside. I loved everything but the old dolls and blown glass were awesome. I have almost 100... More

So much to see! This place is a huge museum, that is sure to keep the kids and the rest of the family happy. We went in the middle of summer and it was very hot. We still had a great time, even though the kids did complain a bit about the heat, but that's not any fault of Har-Ber... More

I didn't really no what to expect when planning a day trip to the Village, but was truly amazed. This was a very unique journey back in time. It is well laid out, really clean, and fun for all ages. It took us about 2 hours to walk around the whole museum. Today the weather was perfect to be outside!
