This two story museum which is ADA accessible is full of interesting exhibits on the history of Oklahoma from 1889-1913 and also has a small gift shop. It is connected to the Carnegie Library, built in 1902-1903 which is also worth a visit while you are at the museum. There is detailed info on the 26 different tribes moved from... More

This is a place that should be honored and used a lot by people of all ages. It is filled with historical facts and pictures and items. We seem to have forgotten how rough the preceeding centuries were.

I always wanted to go see this museum as we traveled by Guthrie and never took the time until this trip. Glad we did. Our family history includes the homestead we still own part of acquired by my great grandfather after the land run. The museum curator was very helpful in printing off some documents for me relative to our... More

An excellent museum. Could use some interactive displays for adults and children. Some video and audio presentations would go a long way in making this an even better place. Low lighting is a problem however. Hard to see some of the exhibits.

This is a hidden gem of Oklahoma museums. Lots of really cool Oklahoma history here, especially in the time around the Oklahoma land run. If you like cowboys and wagon trains and outlaw history, this is a fun place to learn about the wild Oklahoma sooner times.

Oklahoma is a unique sort of place, in that it was founded by a "wedding" of sorts between the white predominant society and the fading society of the red people of native heritage, who had been moved to Oklahoma/Indian Territory, during their expulsion from the rest of the country during the 19th Century. Failing to gain statehood, as an "Indian"... More

I took my youngest daughter with me on a recent outing to Guthrie. Although we enjoyed our stop, there really wasn't much for young children. There were some interesting exhibits and artifacts, but better suited for older children and families.

Stopped and visited. Two floors of exhibits about Oklahoma History. It's has a great exhibit about Statehood with good artifacts. The Library is interesting as well. It was worth the $3 admission.

History buffs interested in details of the Oklahoma land rush era must visit this collection. The staff is professional and helpful. Very well presented exhibits of U.S. Marshalls of the Territory, pioneer families, outlaws, Carrie Nation, and Sooners bring the colorful, unique time in Oklahoma history to life.
