The Governor Seay Mansion is a treat. It has been nicely restored to its hey day. Some day, when the Oklahoma Historical Society has extra money, it would be great if they could reconstruct the 3rd floor ball room that was destroyed by a tornado years ago. The museum is a nice museum, similar to others you will find in... More

We stopped at The Chisholm Trail Museum in Kingfisher Oklahoma recently and were very pleased. This museum was very well maintained and had a lot of memorabilia from the Chishilm trail. There are a lot of farm implements and tools that you would find at this time in history. A nice surprise was waiting outdoors where you will find original... More

This is not a large museum, but has plenty to be seen and learn from. We have had the good fortune to have several great curators, including the present one. It contains an exhibit from the old TG&Y, five and ten chain. In fact, the "Y" in the name stood for Young, who was from Kingfisher. There are many interesting... More

I went to the Chisholm Trail Museum. It was undergoing some renovations that are going to turn out very nice. It's a small place, but full of interesting and well displayed items. I liked the tiny bookstore the best. I found books there not available other places. Very nice offering of good books to read regarding their topic and genre... More

A great day trip into the past of Oklahoma History. Museum has classes on old crafts and activities. Just enough of the old Outlaw information to interest the kids.

We headed to Kingfisher on a very hot day in July 2011 - well over 100F - and didn't expect much. Admission was $4 for adults, and what great value it turned out to be! The museum has a short interpretive film about Sam Chisholm and the trail, which helps to orient you. There are then numerous exhibits connected with... More
