I admit I go to the Museum every time I am in Pawhuska. The collection on display is small but invariably changes. There were different items on display in April 2018 than there were in June 2018 for instance. This has always been the case....More

This is a little museum that is nicely devoted to the culture of this single native American tribe. The collection is small but high-quality. My disappointment here is that they might have done so much more with it. The front room of the museum is...More

If you are interested in Osage history or genealogy, this is a good place to look for answers. It is rather small but the staff is knowledgeable and ready to answer questions. I would have liked to see more photos and artifacts.

After a meal at Mercantile you need to visit and learn about the Osage Tribe. A small place bu there'st a lot of good history represented in the museum. Pawhuska is the tribal office for the Osage Nation.

This small museum gives a good overview of the Osage. Worth the short time it takes to tour. There is a small section that has rotating shows. When I went it was artwork of an Osage artist.

The Osage Tribal Museum is surprisingly small yet worth the visit. The first (of two rooms) dives into Osage tribal history and provide a great overview of the development of the tribe and the history of journey to its ultimate home in Osage County. The...More
