You know? Everything there is to know about pigeons cannot be found in a book, but they have something wonderful here! There are live pigeons to greet you and when you walk into this air conditioned space it's mind blowing! There is so much there it can hardly be done in one visit! There is a lot to see and... More

This museum is very well maintained and is full of interesting information. I never knew pigeon keeping was so popular, nor did I know pigeon racing was a thing. The best part, in my opinion, was getting to see all the different varieties of pigeons outside and getting to pet and hold them. For a free museum, the visit was... More

We were the only visitors on a Friday afternoon. Extremely educational: how Europeans brought pigeons to North America, and how pigeons have flourished in every urban setting. Military role of pigeons carrying messages. Amazing.

We had seen a movie about courier pigeons and Allied forces during wars, especially in Belgium. Then passed the museum on the way to the national cowboy museum. 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
