Owner description: A massive museum known for its Western art.
Reviewed 21 August 2017

I had no idea this museum was in OKC. What a wonderful surprise! It is so much larger than you can imagine. There is some of the most beautiful art you will see. And each piece is different (as opposed to some Paris museums who have painting after painting of the same things). There are so many different aspects to the cowboy history shown - it's almost impossible to describe. This is a DO NOT MISS museums. Anyone who has ever been interested in the Old West, Cowboy's, Indians, ect., will truly enjoy this extraordinarily well done experience. We spent about three hours and I don't think we saw everything. Love, love, loved it!

Allow a LOT of time here! There is so much to see, you can't possibly rush through it. The docents were extremely helpful in pointing things out that we might otherwise have missed.

This place is absolutely incredible, similar to Buffalo Bill Center, Cody, Wyoming. Unbelievable art work, artifacts, exhibits. Exhibits are well thought out. Quality gift shop offerings. Too much to absorb and truly appreciate in one visit; we will return soon and plan to spend a full day - or two!

Excellent experience --Large part of painting collection away on tour (?) so admission was free. This enabled us to see areas we had not had time for on previous visits and we still wished we had more time. From fine art to historical and cultural perspective on the west. Cafe was reconfigured with counter service and a new lunch menu. Food was still good (small counter service by the upscale Petroleum Club) but really missed the traditional hot bar buffet.

It is hard to describe how amazing it was to visit this museum. It is huge. We were there for four hours and could have spent many more if we had the time. There are galleries of paintings, sculptures and textiles. Other galleries include rodeo history, western television shows and movies, the cavalry, and a replica of a pioneer town. Simply incredible. Do not miss this museum.
