I had know idea the museum would be so extensive! We really could have stayed several hours more! I especially loved the pioneer town and the rodeo exhibit. My husband and I plan on going back to take our girls and my in-laws who would love it! They have a neat children's area, also, with hands-on activities. We didn't eat... More

This was a little pricey, but we had a coupon for $2 off. When we first started our tour of the museum and all we saw was art work (don't get me wrong - there's some awesome art work here!!), but we weren't thinking it would take us long to go through it, but then we got into the other... More

Overall we enjoyed our visit. There was quite a bit to see, but about half of it was boring for small children and they were getting antsy.

If you require a cane the museum is too long. Everything starts to look the same after a while. Several of the movie stars donated items from their movies which was Cool. But not really worth the $ 12 admission.

Holy Cow! This place is huge! Although I am somewhat of a city girl, I really did enjoy this museum. The rooms about western movies were especially fun. We also loved spending time in "Prosperity Junction" which is a depiction of what a western town would be like. Very recommended!

Plan to spend some time in this museum. (If so inclined, be sure to ask about the 2 day pass.) There's so much to see that you will find yourself spending several hours at a minimum to take it all in. Otherwise, expect to spend at least 3 hours for a quick run through. The docents are friendly and knowledgeable.... More

This is a great museum with many exhibits both from the actual cowboy days, to those that honored the cowboys in the entertainment industry. We loved it and spent several hours going through.

I had no idea what to expect (well, maybe *some* idea) at this museum. We were lucky enough to visit during a special "Prix de West" invitational exhibit, and it did not disappoint. From the paintings, to the Indian artifacts, to the Remington and Russell bronzes, everything was absolutely wonderful. I wish I'd had an entire day to spend here.... More

A vast variety of exhibits really giving a insight into the old west,.The interactive sections are great fun as is the frontier town at dusk . I was totally blown away by the barbed wire section, never imagined that so many types existed.The museum is also a great place to have your lunch, really good food at a modest price.... More

We East Coast travelers were looking for a true Oklahoma experience, and this is it. The museum is huge, the exhibits are high quality and well-displayed. There is just the right amount of "interactive" -- enough to break up the dullness of endless glass cases, but not so much as to be gimmicky. The videos are good and relevant. The... More
