Although the museum is small, it is staffed with knowledgeable people who really care that you have come to see their treasures. We especially enjoyed seeing the Jerome Tiger sculpture, "Stickballer" and learning of his short, talented life. We also really liked the sculpture, "Uprooted" and the insights into the sad treatment of our native Americans. For the $3 adult... More

Staff friendly, and helpful. For a small museum in a historical building, both the exhibits of the 5 nations cultures and the art exhibits upstairs were very impressive. Very informative!

A small museum with nice display of artifacts and art work of the Native American Indians called the Five Civilized Tribes, i.e. Cherokee, Chickasaw, Choctaw, Muscogee Creek, and Seminole tribes. We spent about two hours. Especially nice is the film in the upstairs library section.

This is a small museum, housed in an old 2-story sandstone building circa 1875. The museum is a gold mine of Oklahoma Indian history, culture, and artifacts. At the time we visited, the upper level was filled with beautiful art work from the Art Under The Oaks Competition. This museum is a must-see when in Muskogee.

This museum boils down to, "We were forced to move here (first floor), here's some art (second floor)." There is so much more they could do with this, even with the small space. There were just two books from the gift shop in the display case for the Choctaw and an apologetic note. I brought my children here to learn... More

We traveled with a bus group we had a guide who arrives at 11 a.m. The museum had two floors it has an elevator. The first floor has the history, and gift shop. The second floor has a lot of art, and a library where you can watch a film.

Small with few displays "doing the best they can". Wonderful old stone house just past the Veteran's hospital complex. This is a sad story of the relocation of the Indians that could use more telling with personal family stories.

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.
