  • Super museum. Our 16 yr old grandson enjoyed it, too. Just give it plenty of time on your schedule as it is many museums within a museum.  more »

  • Everyone was very pleased with the museum, but you need more time, there is so much to see. You could go 3 times Monday Tuesday and Wednesday and still not see everything! It is spectacular.  more »

  • Fun place to wander with kids and adults. There is an indoor recreation of an old west town that gives a glimpse into what life was like then. There are many great cowboy and Native American artifacts to discover. The displays are done really well and are very informative. Highly recommended even if you are not into 'cowboys!, it's an interesting part of our national history.
  • Great museum. I never have been here before this last may. I did some volunteer work for go red for women event with my workplace. Its really super nice here. must visit.
  • One of my favorite museums in Oklahoma for the sheer, somber beauty of the Trail of Tears statue when you first enter the building and the various galleries that depict the Western life and lifestyle. Definitely a must-visit space in Oklahoma and one that has been styled expansively to give visitors an idea of what the Great West was like.
  • Really good museum. They have one Saturday a month where there is free admission for families. We went and it didn't cost anything. They had interactive stuff for the kids to do. The rest of the museum isn't as kid friendly, but really cool stuff
  • Really is a beautiful museum! The collection is incredible. From fine art and sculpture, to American western movie iconic memorabilia. Great for all ages.
