While not the largest museum in the world, visitors are transported back in time to the transplanted Indian tribes, the hearty first settlers and early life back on the plains. I also enjoyed the many photos of black american families, and a glimpse into post slavery history in Oklahoma. Worth a trip, if you're killing time in Lawton.

We stopped by the museum because we were looking for an activity to fill our time on family day.
How exciting to see prairie dogs scattered about when driving up!

The museum itself was okay. There was a nice exhibit on turn of the century photography in the area, with photographs of Native Americans and African Americans.
The rest of the museum was okay.

The class was a lot of fun. I now have a new hobby.
The Museum of the Great Plains is very interesting and has a small but adequate souvenir shop.
Prairie Dogs inhabit the lawn along with Canadian Geese -- in season.

First time visitor to this museum; will be back. Did not do the outdoor portion due to temp and wind. Good displays, informative and well displayed. Staff were extremely friendly and accommodating; worth a stop.
