Not only was the Museum informative and well presented; the food in the dining area was great as well. Impressive collection.

we hadn't visited in many years, and there seems to have been a big expansion. there was a special art exhibit this time, and it was fun to see "up and coming" artists. there are also fun, easy to follow historical exhibits. it's good to pick and choose what to see in one visit, since there is quite a bit...

Plan to spend some time here, because there is so much to see and the art is beautiful. Use the map they give you or you may miss a lot.

We return every year to see the new exhibits. The art is gorgeous. The history always draws me in too. We love it here! Try the restaurant too!

I was not a fan of everything relating to Cowboys and Indians until I visited this museum. It is housed in a superb building in pleasant grounds. The whole place is spotless and the cafe serves great food. There is so much to see that 3/4 hours would be an ideal time to spend here. I loved the room devoted... More

The complex is divided into art gallery and museum sections with dioramas. I feel much more knowledgeable about cowboys, rodeos and western life in general. It was easy to spend a few hours here. Although a large school group arrived when we did, we only crossed paths once. The gift shop had lots of goodies but no cloth patches -they... More

This is a fantastic museum. It has both rodeo displays and true cowboy lifestyle information. It also has cowboy artwork. If you have time eat in the restaurant. It is wonderful. Sitdown eating with a great selection.

You know for some reason I finally visited the museum. Parts of it were ok but it was a little underwhelming. At least I can say I went. Doubt I will go again.

. The National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum is one of the best museums I have visited. It preserves and interprets the evolving history and cultures of the American West. It is an interactive adventure as you relive the old American West. A must for Oklahoma City Visitors.
