Oklahoma City’s National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum is a tribute to the West and its undeniable mark on American history and culture. A very large museum with much for everyone who visits, it offers education and reflection on the Wild West and its influence.

OMG this place is huge and amazing. Plan on spending a few hours here. The art work alone is worth the trip. You don't have to like Cowboys or westerns to enjoy this museum. It even has a full scale western town that you can walk through. Don't forget to stop at the gift shop.

This museum is large and well spaced out. The displays are varied and offer a wide selection of things to see - art, clothes, saddles, barbed wire (they actually have 1300 types on display!), statues, rodeo, trick riding history. There is a great kids area where EVERYTHING can be touched - we all found this fun. The ground are beautiful... More

Everyone will like this museum, but it's even more surreal if you are NOT from the Great Plains region and the "amber waves of grain" is more like a photo to you than a real visual memory. Whether it's the beautifully inspired artwork ranging from presidential busts or the massive painting in the auditorium, whether it's the old west village... More

The museum is huge, a lot bigger than I expected, over 250,000 sq ft. There is a huge collection of western paintings and sculptures including several of Remington's. There is a section with memorabilia from all the cowboy show on TV like Pallidan, Gunsmoke, Roy Rogers, Gene Autry, etc, A nice collection of memorabilia from John Wayne and some other... More
