I came here on a field trip with my kids. I was expecting to learn about all the great people from Oklahoma, including many Native Americans, but the museum has a really low threshold for who they consider to be "Oklahoman." You pretty much only...More

The museum itself is interesting in terms of Oklahoma pride and history. Worth a visit whether you are a native or a visitor. But as a wedding venue, it is delightful. Picture a ceremony in the garden courtyard, flanked by walls of water. Then the...More

Aside from a temporary exhibit of paintings by a local artist, the exhibit halls are filled with portraits of notable Oklahomans. Its not anything I am interested in nor will I remember any of it. Exhibit space in a superb mansion and certainly could be...More

Housed in a beautiful location, the Gaylord-Pickens Museum is a treasure for Oklahoma City. It's interactive displays are state of the art and will give natives and tourists alike a new found appreciation for the "Sooner State." A must see.

This is a small museum in a beautiful building in Oklahoma City. It has oil paintings of all people who have been inducted into the Oklahoma Hall of Fame. I did find myself wishing that each painting had an explanation of the person's contributions to...More

This museum is housed in a great restored building. I was excited to learn about the prominent luminaries from OK. Disappointingly, the only people truly highlighted were the ones inducted into the Hall of Fame this year. The remainder of the museum has an empty...More

Open since 2007 in a historical building, this is one of those new breed of museums that are basically a bunch of empty rooms. It relies on technology and lots of video screens from which visitors can select and view video clips. There are areas...More

Fun museum about famous people from Oklahoma. Plenty of portraits and video presentations. I never thought I would see the Flaming Lips and Wiley Post in one museum. The videos are short but very informative. The building is nice old bank building. Admission is reasonable.

I liked this museum because it showcases Oklahomans. Some I knew about, others I didn't. It didn't take long and was a beautiful old building that has been repurposed.
