We stopped into the museum during our road trip across Route 66. The woman at the front desk was so rude to us that we didn't even go into the museum. We walked right out and go back on the road. Very disappointing.

Another MUST when in OKC. Loved the place. Could have spent hours here! The barbed wire collection and the saddles were the highlights for me.

This is a beautiful museum with excellent displays of paintings and sculptures, plus a broad array of memorabilia from the rodeo, movies and television westerns. The museum building itself is beautiful and well lit, even on the overcast day we visited. Plan on spending in excess of two hours for an overview visit, or plan on making multiple visits. There...

A visit to this museum is a must for anyone who wants to broaden their understanding of the west and southwestern states and their impact on the world. I've watched this place grow from a dusty, ill-kept collection of cowboy bits and bobs to a world class art venue well worth visiting. Fun for the entire family! Watch for the... More

This museum is absolutely in immaculate repair. The exhibits are incredible. The docents are so very friendly and helpful. You can easily spend several hours to the entire day there. In addition, they have a wonderful restaurant called Persimmon Hill, that has a fabulous buffet, or you can order off of the menu. DEFINITELY worth the trip!

There is a small section of the museum that is devoted to past rodeo champions etc, but the meat of this museum is the extraordinary collection of western art. This starts with the at least life-sized bronze of Remington's "Comin' through the Rye" outside, continues past the compelling and iconic plaster of paris "End of the Trail" and the huge... More

If you enjoy art, a different type of art. Cowboys and landscape like nothing you have seen before. Must see the large paintings in the banquet room. The look like they change depending on the light in the room.

I have gone to this museum all my life. My grandfather and another relative were charter members to get it started years ago. It has changed over the years and I will always call it the Cowboy Hall of Fame. Changes are good and new. I recommend it to people visiting or new to the area.

What a great place, this is my second time here and it still amazes me. The collection of western art, the sculpture and the layout are great The western town is fantastic, don't miss it. the rodeo stadium, the tribute to westerns and the cinema is also very well done. But don't miss the outdoor sculptures.
