  • This museum provides a good history of the state of Oklahoma. Although I have lived here 26 years of my adult life, I learned so much in just the first two exhibit halls! The museum is very well laid out and the exhibits are beautiful. I can't believe the museum has been open 14 years, as it is very clean and looks brand new! There is a good mix of interactive learning for adults and kids and view/read only items. Many of the Native American bead work items are stunning. The Oklahoma / Vietnam war gallery was unique, very moving exhibits to say the least. Fun to sing and dance along with the "Oklahoma" musical playing in the Noble Foundation Gallery. Outside, the museum grounds are also beautiful. Too much to write - I had a great afternoon. Easy to navigate, ample parking, great gift shop, lots of photo opportunities! The staff was also friendly and helpful.
