“Small town, big history”
Reviewed 26 December 2013

Great location and excellent pieces during different times of the year. Perfect place to learn about the giant tornado that nearly blew away Woodward entirely as well as educational for children. Wonderful exhibits and local photography contests. A definite place to stop while visiting Woodward or on your way through to another destination.

“Museum Was Nice Surprise”
Reviewed 18 July 2012

We recently took a road trip across northwestern Oklahoma, and stopped at this museum not knowing anything about it. We were pleasantly surprised. The museum was very interesting with local and early Oklahoma history. My husband and I are history teachers and there were two things in this museum we had never seen (we have been to many museums). We saw our first ever "witness tree." A witness tree had legal descriptions of lands in the Cherokee Outlet/land run areas. The army survey teams would carve the legal descriptions into certain trees for settlers. Also, I saw my first ever pair of "ice boots." These were metal boots that men who worked in the ice industry wore. There is no admission but a donation box is at the front door. There was also a small gift shop that had some interesting items that were reasonably priced. I highly recommend this museum

“Pioneer Life in Oklahoma”
Reviewed 7 February 2012

This was a very interesting museum. It showed early Oklahoma life, and the days of the dust bowl. It had things for children also. We enjoyed it very much. It wasn't a large museum so you can tour it in 2-3 hours, or however long you like. There is no admission fee. It is by donations, but it has a lot of good things to see. Well worth the stop to see it .
