  • Popularly known as National cowboys Museum. I just loved the Museum especially the cultural heritage of indigenous peoples. The day we visited the Museum, we were entertained by the flute, solo and group dance and singing of native Oklahoman. The performances were mesmerizing. The museum is very beautiful and gigantic. One can easily spend 2/3 hrs here in the Museum.
  • Enormous museum; my boyfriend and I didn't even have time to walk the entire place! Lots and lots of beautiful paintings and other artwork! There's an original, although highly restored, stagecoach at the entrance to the exhibits that you can actually sit in. In addition to the lovely artwork, I really enjoyed the exhibits dedicated to different movie stars showcasing their careers in western films. My boyfriend and I will definitely come back as soon as we can to see the other half of the museum that we weren't able to see our first time around!
