HAR-BER VILLAGE MUSEUM is a seasonal (third Saturday in March thru first Saturday in November) pioneer-era village and history museum located on the shores of Grand Lake o' the Cherokees in Oklahoma. Visitors experience the area's history and ecology through self-guided tours. Antiques, collectibles and reproductions are displayed in exhibitions representing the mid-1800s to the early 1900s in the local four-state region (Oklahoma, Arkansas, Missouri and Kansas). Several of the Village's HISTORIC BUILDINGS were relocated to the grounds, including a schoolhouse, jail and 16 log cabins. Other log structures were built to house collections and are typical for the mid-to-late 1800s-a courthouse, a bank, a stagecoach inn and a church built with bricks hand-made before the Civil War. Other replicated buildings include a mercantile, jail and hanging gallows, a doctor's and a dentist's office, print shop, post office, drug store and more. Haven't been to Har-Ber Village in a while? EXHIBITS have been recently renovated and/or relocated, HANDS-ON ACTIVITY STATIONS added (Kid's Cabin, Nursery, School, Jail, Saloon), and frequent WORKSHOPS, events and historic craft and trade demonstrations have become a part of Har-Ber Village's offerings (blacksmith DEMONSTRATIONS, spinning and weaving demonstrations and historic craft WORKSHOPS.

Really neat place right on the lake shore. Quite a collection of early Americana that takes you back in time. So cool to see the way our families lived back in those days! Beautiful setting is a big bonus.

Wonderful example of how people lived before electronics took over. It is laid out well and the displays are plentiful and interesting. If something can be collected, you will find it here. Also nicely landscaped.

The café at Harbor Village was great. We had a burger and chicken salad sandwich, and both were excellent. The server was nice and the food was served quickly.

Some of the displays are interesting. If you have a couple of hours to kill, it might be worth stopping by.

Yes it does. I would suggest driving up to the cafe. It's up the hill and has parking. Get the fried green tomatoes! Also check out the kitchen garden. Very cool.
