Morning visit

Very well done! My husband got to visit with the director and a man "in period dress and character." Was a treat for him.

Nice little gem we found from seeing a sign on the highway. Good mix of reading and artifacts here. Helped to explain the land rush in Ok. Carnegie library building was interesting to see from an architectural standpoint.

This is an interesting museum, but there just isn't very much here that you couldn't simply read in a book. The museum doesn't do a great job of engaging the visitor, aside from the interesting library section, and really is mostly panels or items behind glass. This wouldn't be such an issue if the museum was also well lit, but... More

We were just having a road trip and decided to visit this museum at the spur of the moment. We were very glad we did! There were lots of things to see and learn about and even the old Carnegie library to rummage through. We enjoyed ourselves and would recommend this to anyone!

This museum provides a great overview of the history of the Oklahoma territory and early statehood. It has points of interest for small kids and adults. Don't miss stepping into the Carnegie Library. It's a beautiful space. It's fun to imagine having that building as your public library.

I cannot believe I had never noticed this little museum before! Although it is not large, you could easily spend hours looking at all the vintage labels, medications, and products. I went with children both times, and they were allowed to touch and interact with so much I the Pharmacy. My kids loved it the first time. The second time,... More

This is a small but well done museum of the history of Oklahoma. It is housed in the lower part of a Carnegie Library. Carnegie was a 19th century industrialist who donated his fortune to help improve American society, including the construction of a large number of free libraries across the country. This building is the first I have come... More

It takes about an hour or ninety minutes to read all the exhibits. They give discounts to seniors. Gift shop was really high. Guthrie had some neat Victorian homes to gaze at while driving downtown and in the residential areas.
