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.

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...
