The Overholser Museum is located in the Heritage Hills historic district. In my opinion, of the museums and attractions in OKC, this would be in the Top 3 of all attractions. Tours are currently offered Tuesday-Saturday from 10 am-2pm at the top of each hour and the entrance fee is $10 for adults. The mansion is closed the month of... More

I've lived in the OKC area my entire life, but just recently visited this beautiful home. The entire Heritage Hills area is just lovely and this place is the icing on the cake. OKC was settled in 1889. This was considered the country back then. I would love to live in this area.

This place is very historically significant to the city of Oklahoma, but more over it is also a very neat place to visit. The mansion is beautiful from the outside and so are the surrounding grounds. But inside is even better due to the fact that most of the furniture, wall coverings and household goods are original to the mansion... More

This is a must-see for the historical or architectural enthusiasts. (Our teen loved it as well!) We booked the tour in advance due to a busy season, and they were exceedingly accommodating for our health challenges and time constraints. Our tour guide was a wealth of knowledge, provided a phenomenal tour, and gave us time to see every single detail... More

We really enjoyed our guided tour through Oklahoma's history through this Mansion and it's original owner. The tour guide was very informative. The contents of the mansion are 90%+ original so it was like taking a walk through history.

The Heritage area is a very pretty historical area of Okla. City. Close to downtown. It is very easy to get to this mansion and to park. The mansion was very interesting and had some original furnishings.

This mansion is unique in that all the furnishings are original to the house. The family that lived there donated everything and it's like taking a step back in time and visiting the rich relatives in OKC one hundred years ago. What a gem!

We took the last tour of the day. The area is great, many old homes and the tour guide was wonderful and everything is original to the house.

Do your research! This is a beautiful neighborhood and If We moved to OKC we would want to live here. Huge houses/mansions everywhere. I could not keep my eyes on the road so many nice homes. The place was closed so we parked and walked around for about 30 minutes. Place is nice. Look at the website...get the tour.
