Decent museum. Native American section still has a bit of skew towards the majority white populations. Crashed the helicopter simulator several times.

Just visited the History Center for some family research. There is so much material available that it is hard to focus on what to reference first. Before you get there, you should have a concrete plan on what you're going to do

The exhibits are so interesting and I learned so much about Oklahoma history. I loved so many of the exhibits that it is hard to pick a favorite. Definitely worth the drive to visit!

The History Centre is just across the street from the Capitol Building so it’s easy to get to on foot. For only being $7, it’s quite a good history centre. There’s an exhibit which focuses on all the industries in the area throughout 3 centuries...More
