We popped into this museum after hearing about its new building. It sounded like a quirky little place so we thought it'd be fun. We were simply blown away by this place. The building is beautiful and the exhibits are so well done. I learned so much about the rich history of pigeons (like the fact they have a rich... More

So a friend of mine tells me were going to travel to OKC to visit his cousin. I google the address and it's this museum. There's a pigeon racing building on one side and a residential estate on the other. The museum itself is immaculate and orderly. This place is full of interesting facts about the role of pigeons in... More

We contacted the museum since we would be passing through on a day that they are normally closed. They opened the museum for us and one other group that was also in the area. The museum has a lot of excellent displays and was much larger than we thought it would be. It was an amazing part of our vacation... More

Some friends convinced my wife and I to go the the museum. To be honest I though it was going to be a waste of time, boy was I wrong. The museum is very nice and well laid out. More history packed in to a small place than you can imagine. Highly recommend for all ages and families.

We like animals of all kinds, as well as eclectic museums, and this place seemed to fall solidly in both categories, so we kinda had to stop. For a small museum, there’s a lot of photos, information, and artifacts. There’s information about pigeon breeds, racing pigeon winners, and the use of pigeons in World War I. In front of the...

The museum looks like it's fairly new. It is small but laid out nicely. The kids were ready to go after 5 minutes of looking at pictures of pigeons. The racing history was interesting.

We stopped here based on the other Trip Advisor reviews and it was well worth our time! I think the name has been changed to the American Pigeon Museum and Library... Lori greeted us as we walked up to the building and explained all about the live pigeons on display right outside the door. It was a great introduction and... More

I heard about this museum from the newspaper, and was expecting it to be kind of lame. Boy was I wrong! This place is full of interesting facts about the role of pigeons in WW1 and WW2 and so much more! They had live birds out front so you could see the different breeds up close. They even let me...

I visited this museum with my parents in mid-August and we had a wonderful time. The museum curators are a very knowledgable and kind couple. They took the time to introduce us to the live pigeon breeds they had outside, and I even got to hold a couple of them! Inside, the museum is very cool. It is brand new... More

I went to their opening event last June and I was very impressed! They are in a new building and have lots of displays, history exhibits, and art. They even had different breeds of "fancy" pigeons outside for you to see up close, and were very knowledgeable about the birds. This is a great family destination, and it's free! I'll... More
