When I pulled out of the diner lot, I saw a sign pointing to this museum. I'm in town fir a tribal film festival and thought I should find out about the local culture. The $3 admission fee is well worth the look at the small exhibit and the upstairs art show.

If you are an Indian enthusiast you will love this museum. It's small but very detailed. The artwork by local artists is amazing. The story of relocation and freedmen told in great detail.

Informative displays about the culture and history of the Cherokee, Chickasaw, Choctaw, Muskogee (Creek), and Seminole tribes, including their relocation to "Indian Territory" in Oklahoma. A little difficult to find. Small admission fee. Well worth a stop.

We went to this museum on May the 7th, it was only $3 for seniors, there is a lot of history here about the five civilized tribes.

This is a small museum in a great, historic building. It is located on a hill above Muskogee, near the VA Hospital and Honor Heights Park. There is a reasonable admission charge, with a senior citizen discount. There are maps and narrative history of the resettlement of the 5 tribes that give a complete but condensed history of the Trail... More

Enjoyed the self-directed history presented with artifacts. Also loved the Stone art exhibit. I spent at least 2 hours studying the exhibits I also enjoyed the video presenting information about William Stone and his beautiful sculptures. I wanted to take some home!

The building alone is amazing......to think you are walking on the very same bricks that they did so long ago. Super little museum; well laid out. They made the most of limited space. A heartbreaking story of The Trail of Tears; the best, concise explanation and maps of the entire "resettlement" I've ever seen....and I grew up in Oklahoma. While... More
