My family and I (husband, daughter/husband, spent approximately 4 hours at this museum and could have easily spent 4 more. The art work is amazing, especially the bronze statues. They also have a wonderful garden with waterfalls and walking area with more statues and several plaques commemorating famous animals--we spent about 1 hour walking the gardens.

A great place to get involved in the history of the old west and the rough and touch lives the cowboy lived and lives. Great stature, paintings and photos. Every little boy who visits may leave thinking he might want top grow to be a cowboy!!!!!

The Annie Oakley Society does a great job here and the museum itself is terrific in every way. The personnel is helpful and very friendly. The rooms are large and airy and the presentations are stellar.

If you are interested in the best Western art, as well as cowboys and Indians, this is the place for you. Like the equally superb Western museum in Cody, WY, this is a place you could easily spend half a day in.

Beautiful building, helpful guide to set us off. Interesting exhibits although some of the layout is a bit confusing. It's a great place to wander round.

My husband had enjoyed this museum 30 years ago, and insisted that we stop in Oklahoma City when driving from Florida to California and back. He was right! I would like to come back and spend three leisurely days viewing parts of this huge complex. Also, we thoroughly enjoyed the cafe for lunch.

I never knew there was a cowboy museum until I heard about the chuck wagon cook off. We stopped at the museum and spent a few hours looking at all the rodeo and cattlemen of the good ole days. This is a very neat and historical place to see just how this country was started.

Whether you can quote every John Wayne movie or have only a small grasp on the world of cowboys (and we are no Wild West aficionados), there is something for everyone here. I couldn't get over the SIZE of this place! The exhibits are endless. Packed with resources and information--cowboys, rodeos, ranchers, women, Native Americans, fashion, food, travel--this place has... More

This museum was very interesting and it is a beautiful building with lovely grounds.I was surprised at how much time and space they gave to movie and television cowboys but still a nice thing to do in OKC
