Stopped in and was very education on Pidgeon history. The Docents were so friendly and answered all questions. We held some pigeons and learned Doves are pidgeons! Our friends returned with there...

This museum, although you might not imagine it at first glance, is a very well done museum and a great and informative way to use an hour. A must see!

I was amazed to see live pigeons and hear about the military stories of how important they were during the war. Lots of racing mementos . Really who knew how many kinds there were. We had a great time. Easy to get to the museum and it's close to other attractions. Donations accepted. A must see

Located near several major attractions, including the Oklahoma City Zoo and The National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum, this little known museum is only open Fridays and Saturdays. It is a clean and well laid out museum, offering something for everyone. Start your visit by viewing a short film about the history of pigeons. Walk through the art gallery featuring... More

This is a small museum, but free, informative and well done. I wouldn't recommend it for the smallest kids as it is not hands on. Ages 8 and up would be good. The 10 minute movie you start with is well worth watching. We got to hold pigeons at the end too. Hours are very limited but the staff was... More

Okay, it is what it is---it's a museum about pigeons. But it is such a great little random stop. It's about a mile from the Western Heritage museum. There are live pigeons out front, a stuffed war hero pigeon named 'Spike' inside, and the history of what pigeons have meant to humans in between. I've always been amused by our... More

We popped into this museum after hearing about its new building. It sounded like a quirky little place so we thought it'd be fun. We were simply blown away by this place. The building is beautiful and the exhibits are so well done. I learned so much about the rich history of pigeons (like the fact they have a rich... More

So a friend of mine tells me were going to travel to OKC to visit his cousin. I google the address and it's this museum. There's a pigeon racing building on one side and a residential estate on the other. The museum itself is immaculate and orderly. This place is full of interesting facts about the role of pigeons in... More

We contacted the museum since we would be passing through on a day that they are normally closed. They opened the museum for us and one other group that was also in the area. The museum has a lot of excellent displays and was much larger than we thought it would be. It was an amazing part of our vacation... More
