Where are we going today?

The museum offers a unique look into the varied history of southeastern Oklahoma. From pre-historic bones, the Choctaw Trail of Tears and a stop on the Butterfield Stage Line, to homegrown talents Reba McEntire and the late Lane Frost, the museum and it's picnic grounds are a welcome rest stop on US-69 Highway.

    Surprisingly interesting and even non-partisan in some places. However, as mentioned by another reviewer, the entire slavery aspect is glossed over. But it is good for Northerners to remember that those in the south suffered, even if they were ultimately on the losing side. Worth a visit, but can make a person uncomfortable at times.

    Lots of artifacts in a distinctive stone building. A bit too focused on individual soldiers, I'd like to learn a bit more about the causes/development of the civil war.

    Fantastic Step Back in Time: If you seek a Civil War museum, remember that this is a Confederate Museum that was built (in 1891) to house the artifacts & documents of the South. It is not supposed to represent a Northern point of view. It is definitely worth a visit.
