I grew up in Duncan and was aware that the Chisholm Trail ran through the city. I didn't, however, know the details of the trail's origin and how interesting the stories were. I highly recommend this museum for residents, and when residents have friends and family in town. Well worth the one hour tour and very entertaining.

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.
