Had the opportunity to spend a few hours in this museum a few years ago. As the title says I really don't do the museum scene, but I really enjoyed this one and found that a few hours was not enough. I could easily spend half a day here and I would like to go back.

You really need more than two hours to see this whole thing. The three impressive sculptures, the many rooms of western and Native American art, and then all the artifacts - galleries for rodeo, firearms, saddles, western clothing, Native American clothing, utensils and tools, movies and their actors. Two unusual exhibits were a cattle town set up, very real feel,... More

After living in Oklahoma a big part of my life and always telling myself to take the time to visit this "One Of A Kind" monument to the history of Oklahoma as well as history of our entire country, at the young age of 74, I finally made it. I must say that it more than filled my expectations and... More

There were some really good paintings of the old West. The grounds were nice with some interesting graves. It was very big and spread out causing it to be a little difficult to get around. There were a few school groups there so areas would become congested.

We spent about 5 very enjoyable hours touring this museum. The docents were friendly and informative. This museum has a nice mix of artwork and historical information on the west. It covered everything from Cowboy history, Native American culture, different styles of saddles, and who knew there were so many different types of barbed wire. I would definitely recommend spending... More

Being from the UK this part of American culture is alien to me so it was interesting to learn about America's western heritage. Highlights included the old timee town Prosperity Junction (lots of photo op's available), Westerns on screen and by far the biggest collection of barbed wire that I have seen and probably will ever see. There was also... More

The museum is good value with some wonderful exhibits and art work. The section that highlighted Native American culture and costume was by far the best. The artwork displayed was wonderful, and the leatherwork on the saddles was particularly impressive. The museum has mainly static exhibits but was informative and covered a wide range of interests.

Excellent family adventure and history lesson in one. You can spend several hours there. Great exhibits and interactive displays, lots of old movie memorabilia. Fun and educational for all ages.

Only thing i disliked was the security shadowed way to much. It felt like we were being stalked. Hard to enjoy yourself with someone watching your every move!
