The Oklahoma History center is a well done museum with great exhibits on Oklahoma's unique history. "Smithsonian quality", as the website describes them, is accurate. The exhibits are organized into 4 different rooms and are creatively displayed. There are movies and audio elements, and lots and lots of "artifacts" on display. If history is your thing, you will definitely like this museum.

We only had time to see a small part of the museum section. Our main purpose was for genealogical research. What we saw of the museum was totally fascinating. If you are a history buff this is the place to go!

As for research - their facility is awesome! We did not go away empty handed. The staff in both the museum and the research sections were both helpful, and friendly. Our only mistake was allowing one day. We are already planning our return trip!
