What is there to do?

Back in 1959, the cemetery on the grounds of the Atoka Museum was declared the state's first official Civil War Confederate cemetery - and today, you can visit it on your next family day out in Oklahoma, for a chance to really immerse yourselves in the rich history of the region.

Today, you can explore the cemetery, the museum, and a Visitor Center, bringing to life a piece of Oklahoma's history which dramatically altered the course of its future.

Throughout the museum you have 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 like Reba McEntire, and the late legendary bull rider Lane Frost!

The exhibits feature actual historic artifacts, as well as re-created displays of what life would have been like during certain moments in history.

Kids can see uniforms, and period clothing, as well as memorabilia from notable talents.

>Don't miss the chance to visit one of the museum's living history days either, occurring annually every spring. Staff are there to answer any questions, and it always makes a super fun day out for the kids!

So are you ready to re-live history in Oklahoma, at the Akota Museum and Civil War Cemetery? It's time to go back in time!
