What I liked about the place is it's well thought out and there is a lot to see. Too bad you cannot take photos and it's a little hard to find cause it's right next door to the hospital. But it was nice to see them preserving history so others can see how it was back then.

Loved the art work, and trail of tears exhibit. Needed to turn the air down, it was stuffy and warm, but I'm sure that was due to the door opening so much and 100+ temps outside. The ancient village was very educational

The Five Civilized Tribes Museum sits prominently at the top of the hill overlooking Honor Heights Park, and it is worth a visit. The two story museum houses a primer of Native American life in the 5-Tribes area downstairs. There are numerous artifacts, displays and photographs.

Upstairs is the art gallery. The gallery changes often...when I visited, workers were dismantling a student art show, but there were other items on display including some original wood carvings by Willard and Jason Stone, and of course the bronze "Stickballer" by Jerome Tiger.

Give yourself an hour or two here...and check ahead to see what art is being displayed.

And be sure to drive through the park afterwards. Especially if the azaleas are in bloom.

While this museum has interesting facts about the five tribes, there is not enough to justify the entrance price...and it is only $3.00

This museum is like the other American Indian Museums in Tulsa. No imagination. It's the same thing over and over and over.
