Where are we going today?

Y'all ready to learn all about that cowboy and western culture - because if you are, then the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum is the perfect choice for your family day out!

This great museum in Oklahoma City collects, preserves and exhibits an incredible collection of Western art and artefacts, whilst displaying and educating all who visit on the legacy of our American West!

Each of the exhibits in the museum feature a different theme and topic, so you'll really learn a diverse range of cool facts about this important part of US history and life!

Kids can get up close to Western art, or re-live history as they explore the turn of the century town! There are interactive galleries that focus on those famous American rodeos, cowboys, and Western performers, and offer kids an invaluable education in Native American culture.

From Victorian firearms, to frontier military, and even great gardens to explore, the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum is where the learning never stops!

If that wasn't enough, for those future lasso swingers, there is a fun interactive children's space, and a Children's Cowboy Corral.

Let the museum tell you America's story as it unfolds across the west! Art, pop culture, Native American history, cowboy gear, and life - it's all there to be enjoyed at this great Oklahoma museum!

Y'all saddle up and get on down there, ya hear!

    My wife and I visited Oklahoma City on business a few years ago and we went to the National Cowboy Museum. We both like seeing exhibits about art, history and the old west. This place has all three. The Frederick Remington sculptures and paintings are exquisite. He drew a series of night paintings. They have these grouped into a dimly lit room. When you look at his night paintings, it's like you are looking out onto a dark moonlit meadow, from a house at night.
    They also have a bunch of memorabelia, guns, hands on stuff.
    Also, be sure to go see...Read More

    We went on a free day with some other homeschoolers. It is a beautiful museum. The children's area is fun, and the videos and exhibits are interesting, but our favorite thing is the replica of an old west town. We will definitely be back!

    Last year we brought out grandkids 5,9 and 10, and they all had a great time. There is a special building where they can put on all sorts of cowboy gear, play in and with the various exhibits, get pictures taken etc. The guards were helpful and very friendly. We just went again last week with my sister and her husband and again had a great time. On a side note for the other poster, I live in OKC,I also can conceal carry and if any business doesn't allow it, it's there right.

Also, be sure to go see the large meeting rooms. They have a huge western art mural that is amazing to behold.

The exhibits are set up superbly. There are numerous exhibits that include a narrative and gives you a feeling of being there. They cover everything about the cowboys, rodeos, the military and our Native Americans. The art exhibit is second to none, and they also have special short term exhibits, where the art is for sale (and not cheap). I would say that if you are a visitor or a resident you should not miss a visit!
