My wife and I have been to the Cowboy Museum a number of times - in fact just about every time our children bring our grandchildren we take them there. It never gets old or boring for us and as our grandchildren (6 boys, 1 girl all 8 or below) get older their interest does not wane but simply includes... More

This museum is a true five star experience. World class paintings, sculptures, and exhibits of American heritage. A must see when in OKC, worth a special trip.

Anyone visiting Oklahoma City would be very rewarded by setting aside a good part of a day to visit this magnificent collection of western heritage. The art is unsurpassed and as an added bonus the restaurant has excellent food both from the menu and from the buffet. The gift shop is very well merchandised also.

The paintings and sculptures are fantastic. The model frontier town is wonderful recreation of early western town.

I had not been to the museum since it was expanded and renovated. Took some out-of-town family members, thinking we would spend an hour or two, but stayed the whole afternoon! The museum is extremely well done, with exhibits to interest every age. I definitely recommend this to anyone wanting to learn about our western heritage.

We took a group of homeschoolers to this museum and spent the entire day. They kids were really engaged and really enjoyed their time. They had lots of beautiful artwork as well as some hands on activities for the kids. They really enjoyed going through the western town. We will definitely return.

Drove 4 hours so my son could see the ceramic sculpture that is a member of the Smithsonion Institute, of his late grandfather, 69, 71, 77 NFR Barrelman, Frank Rhoades, and was told the sculpture was " in storage cause it was fragile. It might be rotated and put back out at some other time. Sorry". There were other sculptures... More

Large museum with many things to see. Nice restaurant in the museum. Takes about two hours, but you could spend a lot longer. It is located close to other museums. A must see.
