This is a very nice museum! It's laid out well and they have very knowledgable "Docents" guides that will gladly give you lots of fun info. There is a LOT to look at and explore here so don't rush through it! There is a restaurant on site for lunch which has delicious food! We have been several times for work... More

My four year old son and I live in OKC and just visited the museum for the first time. I was so impressed. Rodeo, film, Native Americans were all represented and more. My four year old son loved it and told me on the way home, " I had so much fun today, mom, thanks." Honestly, the children's section was... More

Thought it was not nearly interactive enough for kids. I can imagine my teenagers just rolling their eyes and wondering when they could leave. The western town was nice, but there were no signs or displays that told anything about the town or the various buildings. They were all locked up, so you just kind of looked through the windows...

This museum covers just about all aspects of its theme, without overdoing it. It really does take several hours to see it all. Also, the restaurant is very good. Don't miss this place!

While I appreciated the amazing art on display, the museum is not near as engaging as it's intro video says it is. It is absolutely not interactive or kid-friendly. The mock town is full of buildings that you can't go in or touch (my wife set off an alarm!) which disappointed my daughter who wanted to be a 'teacher' in... More

Well lit and bright. Loved the statues/ bronzes, and the paintings of Western scenes. Impressive place. Don't miss the gallery of cowboy film and TV stars.

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
