Owner description: HAR-BER VILLAGE MUSEUM is a seasonal (third Saturday in March thru first Saturday in November) pioneer-era village and history museum located on the shores of Grand Lake o' the Cherokees in Oklahoma. Visitors experience the area's history and ecology through self-guided tours. Antiques, collectibles and reproductions are displayed in exhibitions representing the mid-1800s to the early 1900s in the local four-state region (Oklahoma, Arkansas, Missouri and Kansas). Several of the Village's HISTORIC BUILDINGS were relocated to the grounds, including a schoolhouse, jail and 16 log cabins. Other log structures were built to house collections and are typical for the mid-to-late 1800s-a courthouse, a bank, a stagecoach inn and a church built with bricks hand-made before the Civil War. Other replicated buildings include a mercantile, jail and hanging gallows, a doctor's and a dentist's office, print shop, post office, drug store and more. Haven't been to Har-Ber Village in a while? EXHIBITS have been recently renovated and/or relocated, HANDS-ON ACTIVITY STATIONS added (Kid's Cabin, Nursery, School, Jail, Saloon), and frequent WORKSHOPS, events and historic craft and trade demonstrations have become a part of Har-Ber Village's offerings (blacksmith DEMONSTRATIONS, spinning and weaving demonstrations and historic craft WORKSHOPS.

If you like collector's items, like my daughter does, you will love looking around here. I love walking with my husband and daughter and enjoying the sites of Grand Lake as well as seeing thousands of pieces from yesteryear. Very Cool.

Pack a picnic and plan a full day of going back into time. The kids love it and it is a lot to see. But take your lunch and spread out of a family picnic to make a perfect day.

If you're an antique lover and don't mind not being able to touch, hold or purchase the items, you have to visit this place. They've taken several building, strategically placed delightful antiques in lifelike positions, safely behind glass, and opened the doors for all to see. Right on the shore of Grand Lake, the view is worth the drive in itself.

I first went to Har-Ber Village when I was 8 years old and loved it. Just went again (now 47), and am amazed how it had grown! I swear the Doll and Glass house used to be bigger...or maybe it's just because I'm bigger! But I think it would be best admired on a cool fall day - even though it's full of trees, it was pretty hot in July.
