“Sculptures”
Reviewed 20 April 2014

Since we went on Easter, it was free (usually $8 per adult). There are a tremendous number of sculptures with many of them by Remington. Virtually every room had art on the walls and masks, Native headdresses, beaded clothing, and Native artifacts were a plenty. Beautiful flowers and some statuary outside was enjoyable. Another treat was a life mask of Abraham Lincoln and a cast of his hands (artist made them to use when painting Lincoln). Unfortunately, no photography (although I fully understand why) and a lack of any excellent postcards or books that truly captured what had been seen.

“Great museum”
Reviewed 18 April 2014

A great collection of American Indian and Old West art. A nice collection of artifacts as well; would take several days to see all of it. It is laid out very well to show the history of Oklahoma.

“Excellent showings of Native American art”
Reviewed 17 April 2014

Wonderful examples of Native American art including masks, beaded moccasins, feathered head pieces, and buffalo skins.

Very quiet somber place though there is a small hands on area for kids. They loved seeing a real totem pole!
