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.

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.
