The Chisholm Trail Museum includes much of what you would traditionally find at a county historical museum with an additional focus on the Chisholm Trail. The new exhibit on the Chisholm Trail - in honor of its 150th anniversary - was well done. For my four kids - ages 2 to 9 - the best parts were the wing of... More

This is worth a visit if you are in Kingfisher. It's a fairly large regional type museum in a pretty up to date building. Well organized and professionally done. We visited and were happy to see the T G & Y exhibit. TG&Y was WalMart before there was a WalMart. It grew and grew but eventually closed. Lots of great... More

The Governor Seay Mansion is a treat. It has been nicely restored to its hey day. Some day, when the Oklahoma Historical Society has extra money, it would be great if they could reconstruct the 3rd floor ball room that was destroyed by a tornado years ago. The museum is a nice museum, similar to others you will find in... More

We stopped at The Chisholm Trail Museum in Kingfisher Oklahoma recently and were very pleased. This museum was very well maintained and had a lot of memorabilia from the Chishilm trail. There are a lot of farm implements and tools that you would find at this time in history. A nice surprise was waiting outdoors where you will find original... More

This is not a large museum, but has plenty to be seen and learn from. We have had the good fortune to have several great curators, including the present one. It contains an exhibit from the old TG&Y, five and ten chain. In fact, the "Y" in the name stood for Young, who was from Kingfisher. There are many interesting... More

I went to the Chisholm Trail Museum. It was undergoing some renovations that are going to turn out very nice. It's a small place, but full of interesting and well displayed items. I liked the tiny bookstore the best. I found books there not available other places. Very nice offering of good books to read regarding their topic and genre... More
