Great place for families to visit. Love taking the grands when they are in town. The art work is fabulous and we always enjoy the theatre.

We followed the trail from Dallas to Duncan. The Heritage Ctr was a beautiful, well executed overview of the history of the Chisholm Trail. It's affordable, brief and to the point with interactive things for the kids big and small. A nice way to end our journey.

We were looking forward to revisiting the Chisholm trail heritage Center and to being greeted by Jesse. We were pleasantly surprised that not only was he still there but he had his own room with a partner-very enjoyable! Somethings have changed since we visited in the 1990s but still worth a visit.

Very impressive building and layout. The inter-active exhibits were good. I was disappointed that the museum had very little antiquities to offer. Mostly had a large inventory of merchandise for sale.

Two theaters where you get to experience history. An interactive area where you step into history and explore. A wonderful art gallery. Price includes a tour-guide. If you are staying at the Lindley House Bed & Breakfast, they have a coupon for you to the Museum.

Really nice, clean and orderly museum. Really impressed with the activities for younger children. I recommend watching the interactive video. Also, the kids enjoyed walking the Chisholm trail time line towards the park. We have been several times and it has never been crowded. Staff is always nice and the gift store has really interesting things for all ages.
