  • They have a childrens story time and coloring area... Then your children get griped at for touching the walls... Then you get griped at if you put your toddler on your shoulders to keep them away from the art. Just not a good place to take toddlers. Honestly, I would probably enjoy visiting without children, but I would not recommend their story hour.
  • Enjoyed myself a great deal. Its amazing what treasures one can find close to home.
  • Awesome place! We really enjoyed the Native American Photograph exhibit along with the other pieces.
  • Great free museum to go to if you're an ou student. They also offer a lot of free events to the public
  • Great art and free entry!
