What a really beautiful monument to celebrate the beginnings of the state of Oklahoma! Great for pictures and for children. Larger than life monument is very detailed.

This series of larger than life bronze sculptures depicts the Oklahoma Land Run. It's a clever arrangement of buckboard wagons, riders on horseback, dogs, etc. all running to see if they can stake a piece off land. The monument straddles part of the canal. It's just south of the Bass Pro Shop parking lot, on the east side of the... More

My wife and I stopped here to see this awesome monument to the settlement of part of Oklahoma. If you wish to see the monument, put the Bass Pro Shop OKC into your GPS. Once at Bass Pro, head south past the store, under the bridge being built, then to the SW corner of the parking lot. These are impressive... More

We have taken the few people who have visited us since we have moved to OKC to the land run monument and it's more of a joke for us. We make them believe that it's going to be this great thing to visit and then we wait to see their reaction. It's kind of neat to go look at, but... More

To see this upclose and personal you should take the cruise on the canal. Not only will you get a birds eye view but the narration from the tour operator will help give you a quick history lesson and point out a few things that perhaps you wouldn't know if you simply went minus the boat ride. While it can... More

I saw this on a search of stuff to do in Oklahoma. It's well worth finding. It's not that tough if you follow the Bricktown Canal. It's a huge diorama on both sides of the canal with larger than life size statues. The detail is amazing. The figures have life and motion. Definitely worth finding if you're in Oklahoma.

Not sure why this is listed as an "attraction" but it was a neat find in the parking lot of the Bass Pro shop. Careful on a hot summer day because some kids were complaining of getting burned from the sculpture.

We read about the Centennial Land Run Monument as we were planning for our trip to Oklahoma City and knew it might take some looking to find it. Parking in the Bass Pro Shop lot as several suggested did work well. We could see the monument long before we actually were able to get up close to it due to... More

While I have to agree with all my fellow reviewers that the location behind the Bass Pro Shop couldn't be more ill-chosen, I have to admit that this monument was my favorite part of my visit to OKC! The gigantic life-like statues of the horses, carriages, wagons, dogs, men and women are fascinating. You literally can feel the anxiety and... More

We set out to find the Land Run Monument, circled Bass Pro Shop a few times, and finally ended up having to cut through an active construction site to locate it. The monument is very impressive. We learned much more about it by viewing it from the Bricktown Water Taxi, though. The boat guide told us that the artist who... More
