The only museum in the State of Oklahoma that has a mummy (Tutu)! This place is fantastic and deserves a listing based on my recent trip.

It's small but a great spot. Definitely worth the visit. They have an informative film discussing their resident mummy that is really interesting as well as some great art. You can spend as little or as much time there as you like.

I actually visited twice during this month. They had a special military exhibit going on at that time and I wanted to share the experience with others. The art that is on permanent display is intriguing and awe inspiring. I will visit again.
