  • The Oklahoma History Center is a great place to visit. They have a brand new building now, that is much better than the old one. You can spend hours in here doing research or just looking at the displays. Every time I come here, I discover something new. I think you will enjoy it.
  • Very difficult to figure out. The cafe was closed as well. Rooms do not indicate the displays, just the names of doners. For the most part, it is essentially a tribute to all the influential people who have made contributions to Oklahoma but not a complete Oklahoma History. Where is the mention of Geronimo, Quanah Parker, Indian boarding schools, imprisonment, Buffalo Soldiers? Why does Douglas High School get such a large display but I saw nothing about Deep Deuce, Boley, Tulsa Race Riots, this is not the Oklahoma City history center. I learned a lot about the Diffee family. Many of the displays were typeset so small they were not easy to read. Some of the objects were placed so low, only a child could see them easily. I'm addition there was a typo of the word Earth in the Native American display. The languages and videos in that section were wonderful!
  • Visited the Museum on a trip across the country, was a wonderful little slice of history! We loved the Century Chest Exhibit especially. Had some delicious wraps at the cafe on the third floor as well
  • Wonderful look at the history of our great state! Lots of neat things to see and several interactive exhibits. Fun for all ages.
  • Good space exhibit and Native American gallery. Awesome research room for genealogists!
