This was the reason for our visit to Sulphur and we were not disappointed. The buildings and grounds are beautiful and blend in with nature. The museum is great and interesting for adults and children. We also enjoyed the living village and honor circle (I believe that is what it was called). I certainly recommend going.

We had a most informative & enjoyable visit here. We loved the lake with huge catfish & turtles to feed & watch. There were lots of Native American crafts, pass times & buildings to investigate with good information & pleasant guides to explain everything. Lunch in the restaurant was equally interesting! Buffalo salads & tacos were intriguing & delicious! Well... More

I am a Chickasaw Indian by birth but live out of state. I have kept up with the progress and took the opportunity to visit and educate my children about their heritage. I was struck by the beauty of the buildings, landscapes, architecture, placement, fountains and space. The staff is incredibly knowledgeable and cares that you are interested. The exhibits... More

A very nicely done center. From how the grounds are laid out, to the extensive multi media exhibits, no complaints at all. You will be drawn into the Chickasaw history trip.

We learned so much and thought the property and the staff was wonderful. I recommend this for anyone visiting the area. The exhibit was put together wonderfully. I enjoyed the live village they have to walk through. The weather that day was perfect for this. Loved it!

We drove the 1.5 hour trip from Norman, Oklahoma to visit this center. Being from South Carolina, we did not know what to expect. We were blown away by how well done and tasteful this exhibit is. Well laid out, we left with a whole new appreciation for the Chickasaws, and for their culture. We also left with a much... More

I loved being able to show my children the ways of the Chickasaws from ages ago as well as visit those who still keep some traditions alive. The cultural center is extremely beautiful and educational. Even if you are not "into" Indian culture, I recommend this place for the experience!!

Sometimes we take for granted the things that made this state what it is, A visit to the Chickasaw cultural center in Sulphur Oklahoma, was a true eye opener for both my wife and I. Looking back in history, as seen through the eyes of the native american is what we found at this cultural center. With the wonderful back... More

After seeing billboards for the cultural center for a while I decided to drive the 2 hours north to visit the center on a perfect spring day. Initially, I was not expecting much and we were completely taken by surprise by the architecture and grounds. The entire experience from the parking attendant's welcome to the museum exhibits to the cafe... More
