Wow is all I can say. Such a great center. The Chickasaw people did a amazing job creating their Cultural Center and anyone can visit. Have carts if you need help getting you around and entrance and displays are free. Take time and visit with individuals, very gracious and they take time to tell history of their people. Have a...

4 of us went, 2 children and 2 adults, total cost was $10 to see the exhibit hall, food was very reasonably priced and AWESOME. Staff was so friendly and knowlegable. Beautiful place that the Chickasaw have every right to be proud of.

If you are not impressed at the Chicksaw Cultural Center, then you cannot be impressed. From the immaculately kept grounds, friendly and helpful staff, tasty food, magnificent art, state-of-the-art musuem, the Chickasaw Cultural Center is a "MUST GO TO" destination in Oklahoma. History, culture, beauty, humanities, traditions, reverence--all come alive here. I intend to take a class of students there... More

This is a great place if you want to learn a little native American history. Make sure you see the Chickasaw dance demonstration and the native village. The staff members are more than willing to answer all questions about the tribes history. Even though I grew up cherokee, it always fascinates me to learn the similarities and differences of the...

The Chickasaws have done an outstanding job of depicting in detail the history of their tribe. All the docents are Chickasaw are very knowledgeable and quite engaging. The exhibits are first class. The outside recreation of what a Chickasaw village would have looked like was fascinating. We were able to go inside what a tribal house looked like, what a... More

This is the third summer that the Center has been open to the public and tourist cars are filling the parking lots. The Chickasaw came from the Southeast in 1837 and they are not a Plains tribe. The focus is to educate tourists on tribal culture and to show major contributions made to USA. All the guides are tribal members... More

This is the best cultural center we have ever visited. The grounds are beautifully maintained. The museum is filled with interesting exhibits and many of them have hands-on experiences. There are several short videos depicting tribal life and history. There is also a research library, a sample village and a cafe serving some Chickasaw treats. The tribal members were friendly...

Having traveled from Seattle, WA we had only two days to see the sights of greater Edmond, OK and Oklahoma City. The Chickasaw Cultural Center is not to be missed. It made a lovely, touching and informative impression on our family of three (2 adults and 1 child age 11). We enjoyed the exhibits, the cafe on-site, the living museum/village,... More

It was a great place to visit... My teenage kids enjoyed it. The grounds were beautiful; the honor wall and fountain were beautiful too.

Very interesting and educational, especially if you are interested about Native American history and the journey of the Chickasaw people. The Café is also very good.
