Our kids enjoyed the Living Museum! Cafe was reasonably priced, family friendly, and clean. Campus grounds were easily navigated, having modern conveniences (multiple restrooms, water fountains) but not taking away from the historical reproduction village.

We spent a Sunday afternoon at the Cultural Center. The architecture is amazing, modern but still organic. The weather couldn't have been better for roaming around the grounds. The indoor exhibit was disappointing, not nearly as extensive as we were led to believe. The art gallery had only a dugout canoe, nothing else. The village was laid out well. If... More

This is our first trip to the cultural center. It has multiple buildings with a modern design, beautifully landscaped, and allows the visitor to roam about. It was a hot day in Oklahoma, but most events were held indoors in air conditioning. Their staff IS THE BEST. Everyone was welcoming, friendly, and knew their heritage. The walk to their outdoor...

The Chickasaw Cultural Center is amazing. The Museum is so educational for all ages. As a non-Native, I learned so much about their history. The art work is beautiful. I loved the grounds with the authentic village and their educators who told stories and did traditional dances. I recommend this to everyone.

We have been to many education centers owned and operated by Native American groups and this is by far the most exceptionally run facility. Very educational, well priced, and the staff is well prepared and welcoming. A highlight for any trip to this area.

Great Cultural Center! They had a living Chickasaw Village with demonstrations, films of their history, a live Chickasaw stomp dance with audience participation, which was all free the day we were there and they gave away little homemade items. The museum cost us $6. or $5. student/senior. The museum has a forest, artifacts, a lot of info. They had people... More

Beautiful area and the architecture is really nice. The learning experiance here is one that I don't think is duplicated anywhere in the country.

We went there during our RV trip across the country as one of the stops while we were also checking out Dallas and Oklahoma City. This was the best experience for the area outside of the cities. The demonstrations of the instruments and the dances are very informative and also very spiritual in a way. The village is beautifully constructed... More

I actually volunteer at a museum and I have to admit, this place was the bomb, well groomed and maintained, very educational and just a wonderful experience all together. Highly recommend

The place is huge but beautifully designed. They have golf carts to help those with mobility issues (like my husband) get from place to place. We enjoyed the Stomp Dance Demonstration. Be sure to eat in the cafe. Reasonable prices and lots of unique things to try. We had the fry bread taco and buffalo chili.
