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.

We really enjoyed walking around the beautiful grounds and the exhibits were very well done. We were fascinated and learned a lot about the Chickasaw history and culture. We arrived late in the afternoon and missed some of the demonstrations, but we'll definitely plan on visiting again.

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
