We think this museum is a gem tucked in the heart of America. It's engaging for children and adults alike with interactive exhibits, life-size town, and fine art. Highly recommended for adults, groups, and families alike. Also completely handicap accessible (except the museum aisles were a bit tight for a power wheelchair). All museum staff was very accommodating and helpful.... More

It is a very educational experience and combines some really good artwork in a a great setting. Here you will get a real feel for the old wild west combined with exhibitions of authentic artefacts.

The collection honors native Americans, cowboys,... More

Great displays and magnificent art. Good attraction for family outings. The history offered is so interesting to see and hear about. Worth an afternoon to go see.

This museum has one particular display we went to see. It was a life size old west town with lots of displayes to give insight into the small railroad towns. We were breaking up a long drive so we only stopped for an hour. At a quick glance we could see there is a truly impressive collection og fine art... More

My family and I particularly enjoy the western movie star display. Young children that are not familiar with the old westerns might not enjoy it so much. There is a great deal of western art and paintings, a nice gift shop and a very nice lunch buffet. Definitely worth a visit.

A good to display paintings and sculpture. "The End of the Trail " sculpture in plaster is huge. Good exhibits and a good gift shop. They have events there like the chuck wagon gathering, rent the rooms for big events like annual meetings for credit unions or civic groups.

This is must if you come to Oklahoma. There is so much history of American Indian and Western History. This is one of our favorite places to visit. Do not miss this one. It's close to the zoo on the science Museum.
