  • Beautiful museum, first time here with a field trip with my daughter. Monday kids are free so might want to plan for this day if you want to save a few bucks. Military vets and active are also always free. Hands on goodies for the kids. Sam Noble gallery was closed for renovations, looking forward to seeing that when we return. Enjoy!
  • 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.
  • I agree with the other positive reviews. As a visitor to Oklahoma, the exhibits and displays provided an interesting view into the nation's 46th state. There's something here for everyone and research options too if a deeper dive is desired.
  • GO. GO. GO. Always changing exhibits and interesting permanent collections. Membership is cheap for individuals or families, but you can go as a guest. ... DOING GENEALOGY!? Join Oklahoma Genealogical Society for not much $ but oodles of links, lectures, Webinars and information. ON-SITE meetings the first Monday of the month, 6 pm. AND get membership or as a guest. Oklahoma History Center has ROOMS FULL of information we can access on Indian Territory, Land Runs thru present day. Your relatives could be listed here!! Old Maps, Land ownership info, Documents, Indian Rolls, Oil Mineral Rights - sit for hours or days and do your research in comfortable chairs, tables, rooms. CLEAN RESTROOMS. ... OHC has a cool replica of Winnie Mae, the airplane flown by Oklahoma aviator, Wiley Post. I noticed yesterday there is an exhibit on pipe organs. What a variety of enjoyment is waiting for YOU. GO. ENJOY!
  • Has a lot to offer from the old West to modern and the people that work there are vdeat
