The Chickasaw Cultural Center is a sprawling complex located south of Sulphur, OK. The center consists of numerous buildings including a theater, Aaimpa Cafe, research library, art gallery, exhibit center, gift shop, Chickasaw village, outdoor amphitheater and sky walk. We arrived just before 11am, perfect timing to view the stomp dance in the theater. One of the dancers, Jesse, was... More

I've lived in Oklahoma for 30 years & have never taken the time to study Indian history. The Chickasaws have done a very good job. We got to witness & participate in a Stomp Dance!

I spent a whole day at the research library going through 4 large binders & a dissertation, trying to discover more about my 4th great grandfather, George Colbert. I only found 2 total pages out of the 4 large binders that had any reference to factual documents, otherwise, the rest were just handwritten, or typed letters from people from around... More

What a neat museum--inside and outside. Lots of artifacts and information about the Chickasaw tribe. Outside is a replica of an 1800s Chickasaw village. Be sure to eat at the Aaimpa, a small restaurant which serves some traditional Chickasaw food. It was excellent. I had the daily special which was an Indian taco, pishofa (cracked hominy and pork) and grape... More

The whole center was not only beautiful, but very educational. We watched and then were invited to participate in the Stomp Dance. The outdoor village was very interesting to explore. Signs, recordings, and friendly staff throughout the center made it a great learning experience. We also enjoyed bison tacos on homemade fry bread with corn cribs at the cafe.

I thought it was a nice place if you are in the area but it wasn't worth making a special trip. The exhibit center was interesting and they had a very good special exhibit on the dugout canoes. The theater was closed the day I was there and they didn't have a lot of presentations scheduled, which probably would have... More

Different tribes were presenting and performing the day we visited. We loved the hollowed out canoe exhibit.

This $40million facility is a beautiful and educational center for the Chickasaw Tribe. Very well done and worth the visit. It helps one understand the area and why the Chickasaw's have a presence there.

This center is not only clean and friendly but well laid out and educational. We spent time in the geneology center as we had things to look up. Everyone we ran into was extremely helpful! !

New dug out canoe exhibit is incredible. I'm always impressed by the cultural education I get every time I come to this place. Last time was in 2010 when it first opened. There is much more to it now.
