This is a great museum to visit. They have many types of artwork besides paintings. I especially enjoyed the section devoted to Native Americans and the way they lived.

Their is a lot of art work. You will mind rooms after rooms with out of the world art work. There is a children's room where the children can try on old fashion clothes and have a ball. Not to mention the restaurant is very good, and has a wide selection.

This is some of the best art in the West, so for that the museum is to be praised. However, despite having a child area and many exhibits children would find interesting, the staff at this museum is constantly hostile to or rude about the presence of children. They do not allow diaper bags and have constantly changing rules about... More

The last attraction I visited while in Oklahoma City was the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum. It seemed to be completely removed from most of everything else in Oklahoma City...or at least the Bricktown area I spent a large portion of my OKC time in. When I entered the museum, I was warmly greeted by a gentleman dressed in... More

We had a great time visiting this museum. The themes are as advertised in the name. At the time of our visit, there was a first rate exhibition of "western" art. We loved the exhibit highlighting old western TV shows and movies ..... the rodeo exhibit was great. I'll admit to being skeptical when we decided to go there, but... More

This was a wonderful place to explore for hours. The museum is ( go at your own pace) and the families there from all walks of life add to the grandure of the day. Films, displays, and exhibits are very educational and entertaining to any child under 90. The artifacts alone are woth the visit. DO NOT THNK THIS IS... More

This is a great presentation of the cowboy adventure. We were pleasantly surprised to find it was free on Wednesdays from Labor day until Thanksgiving. To see everything will take a while as there is so much and it is all interesting. If you are going to be in OKC, you should go here.

Had only one day in OKC and wanted to see the Memorial and the State Capitol so left this for last thinking it would not take that long. What a surprise. This was one of the best "themed" museums I have ever been to. Rivals the Country Music Hall of Fame in Nashville. Had to rush through. Could have spent... More

Terrific museum. Some of the finest art, western or otherwise, we’ve seen, and we’ve been to many museums. In particular, Sculptor Gerald Balciar’s “Canyon Princess,” a white marble cougar, is a standout. Lobby is nicely appointed with mission oak furniture. Cafeteria has a good selection for a light bite. Gift shop offers some unique souvenirs. While it’s a bit out... More
