This is an old home with a really nice exhibit. The staff there are very informative and quick to answer questions. Exhibit will entice you to want to learn more about the culture surrounding the tribes who occupied this great land

This tiny museum is very nice. It displays great American Indian art and has different exhibitions throughout the year. Take walk in Honor Heights park and visit the museum.

This is defiantly a small museum in an 1875 Indian Agency House set up by the U.S. Government. The 2nd floor show cases some beautiful art work. Fees: Adult $3.00 & $2.00 for Seniors.

Neat building, a few things teaching you about each of the tribes. Info about the various seminaries and colleges that have been in Muskogee. Art on the 2nd floor was the best part.

Had a few exhibits of each tribe and where they can from. The master art show was good to see and was glad I saw it while it was there. Have been to the National American Indian museum in DC multiple times and have wanted more information on the five Tribes and their beliefs and history. This museum could be... More

If you are looking for a large museum you may be disappointed. The exibits are very good and for those interested in Native American History I think you will find it worth your time. If you come in April when the Azaleas are in bloom be sure to drive through Honor Heights Park which in right in this area.

This museum is in an old building that was built in 1875 and you can certainly tell by the creaky stairs and old wood floors, which is something I love in a old historical place. There is a small museum with a few artifacts and information about the Trail of Tears. Upstairs is an art exhibit. There is a gift... More

The best thing about this place is the drive up the little road to get to it! The leaves were beautiful! This place is so tiny! You can't use your camera, & it's not informative at all! There weren't many displays. (The ones that were there were so common!) The art work on the 2nd floor was ok. I don't... More

We didn't get to see it, they were closed. I wish they would open on Sunday and maybe close on Monday or something. I don't think we are the only people who sometimes only have a Sunday to go do and see things. We ended up going to tour the USS Batship. It was wonderful, and I highly recommend it.

What I liked about the place is it's well thought out and there is a lot to see. Too bad you cannot take photos and it's a little hard to find cause it's right next door to the hospital. But it was nice to see them preserving history so others can see how it was back then.
