I've been there many times and still haven't seen it all as yet. But I'll keep trying. Some evenings they have presentations and tell stories about the history of Ardmore, the area and Southern Oklahoma as a whole. Very interesting.

Museum is much larger than it appears on the outside. Very well organized, exhibits well marked, lots of detail and a lot of them. Its a Must See specially if you are a military history buff or an Oklahoma history buff.
