Captivating look into life in the Midwest of the USA, from the time of Indigenous peoples, till the Cowboy era, right up till modern times. Very impressive collection of objects and dioramas, all labeled clearly. A lot of very poignant and emotional stories, especially regarding the Indigenous peoples and their struggles after white man came along. A must see!

The best was that they had the art on display for their annual art competition. I was able to enjoy all the cool pieces of sculpture and paintings. Nice cafe if you are there and want a bite to eat. Yummy. Gardens to walk around outside are lovely. Take the time if you are able. The most impressive are the... More

It costs $12.50 each to enter so make sure you have time to do it justice. There are many halls and so many exhibits including artwork, a pioneer town, history, American Indian info, artefacts and art, western info and movies, clothing, saddles, weaponry, barbed wire and more! Something for everyone. We certainly enjoyed it.

The artwork is breath-taking and the history is overwhelming. Having come after a visit to West Texas, New Mexico, the Four Corners and staying in The Navajo Nation, I am overwhelmed at the courage of my ancestors and at the tragedy that they orchestrated...sorry to be political. The"End of the Trail" sums it up, well.

If you're interested in Western art and history, you can spend a pleasant afternoon in this museum. There's something for everyone among the wide range of Western exhibits, including a reconstructed frontier town for the little ones to explore. They also have a good exhibit of Native American beadwork.

This is a great museum with a wide variety. They also have a good café for lunch that was excellent. You can spend as much or as little time, very friendly staff.

There is simply no other world-class museum of the American West like the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum. A major perk is the restaurant right next to the Sam Noble Special Events Center. The restaurant serves buffet style full of local favorites...a great place for a group of 6-8.

This is an awesome place. Highly recommend a visit here. So, so much history. It's like a city in a city. I would know how to visit OKC without a visit to this museum.
