If you have interest in Cowboy art, this is the place. It showcases some of the best in American art (mostly paintings and sculptures), with some spectacular pieces. The staff is friendly and at the ready to engage to give you some insights on the art you are viewing. Even the architecture and landscaping is well done. It fell short... More

This museum is a must if you want to get good insight into an important part of Oklahoma culture. It might be a bit of overkill if you aren't really into "everything" cowboy but we got a good taste of it in less than an hour. It was a fun place to go!

Plenty to see and do at this museum. From artwork to historic displays, this museum has it all for fans of cowboys and Westerns. Nice current exhibit about recent inductees into the Cowboy Hall of Fame. The displays are nicely divided up into different themes. Plenty of artwork to look at as well as memorabilia. A must for any John... More

We loved the historical movie section the best and children seemed to enjoy it. The artifacts from some of our favorite westerns and tv stars were fun to see. The art is beautiful and gives the viewer a look at the west one can now only imagine as the way it was. The bronze turkey called, "The Ghost Bird" was... More

Recently we were visiting in OKC while trying to entertain two small children, ages 5 and 8. We all went to this museum and had a wonderful time. The art exhibits didn't hold the kids' attention too well so we headed over to the part that dealt with cowboy history and culture. That part was a big hit, especially the... More

This is your standard museum with pictures on the wall, but it is also mixed with very interactive rooms that all ages/interests will enjoy. Our favorite's were the Rodeo room complete with sounds coming from the life-sized bucking cowboy, Rodeo videos, facts, etc., and the Western Media room complete with movie posters, facts, John Wayne wall(s), interactive music games (guess...

Wonderful family oriented museum, with outdoor garden, children's area, excellent displays of Western Heritage, with well known cowboys, and an excellent restaurant and buffet. Many works of art by well known artists.

Fantastic! We spent over three hours there and could have spent more time. The museum was large, well laid out and really did a great job of showing the rich history of the Western Cowboy. The place was loaded with artifacts, paintings, statues and a beautiful walking garden. They offered movies showing the history of the west in motion pictures... More

I am not a cowboy person not a Western Heritage person but this museum really pulled me in after I walked into the front door. The place is really big and it covers every topic there is about Western Heritage. They have really done an exceptional job in creating and maintaining this museum. An absolute surprise!! The cafeteria serves excellent... More
