Oklahoma Hall of Fame, telling Oklahoma's story through its people. Founded in 1927, the Oklahoma Hall of Fame was created to honor Oklahomans who had given outstanding service to the state during their lifetime. Being inducted to the Oklahoma Hall of Fame is the highest honor an Oklahoman can receive from the state. The Oklahoma Hall of Fame preserves Oklahoma's unique history while promoting pride in our great state. The Oklahoma Hall of Fame inspires Oklahomans of all ages, instilling pride by telling the stories of extraordinary people. Each of its programs strive to accomplish that goal. The organization has hosted the Oklahoma Hall of Fame Banquet & Induction Ceremony for the past 90 years each November. We honor Oklahomans who have contributed to our state's rich heritage by making strides in their industry and bettering mankind. The Oklahoma Hall of Fame also supports education in a variety of ways, including offering more than $4,000,000 intuition grants and scholarships to Oklahoma high school students and hosting Heritage Week competitions for third through 12th graders. The Oklahoma Heritage Association Publishing, publications of the Oklahoma Hall of Fame, is the leader in publishing Oklahoma's history. In the Gaylord-Pickens Museum, home of the Oklahoma Hall of Fame, visitors can meet notable and lesser known accomplished Oklahomans through interactive exhibits. Located in Oklahoma City, the Hall of Fame is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization funded primarily by private donations and is governed by a Board of Directors representing the state of Oklahoma. In addition, the Association has a Teen Board that holds a fund raiser each year and a Second Century Board made up of young professionals responsible for spreading the mission.

Housed in a beautiful location, the Gaylord-Pickens Museum is a treasure for Oklahoma City. It's interactive displays are state of the art and will give natives and tourists alike a new found appreciation for the "Sooner State." A must see.

This museum is housed in a great restored building. I was excited to learn about the prominent luminaries from OK. Disappointingly, the only people truly highlighted were the ones inducted into the Hall of Fame this year. The remainder of the museum has an empty...More

Open since 2007 in a historical building, this is one of those new breed of museums that are basically a bunch of empty rooms. It relies on technology and lots of video screens from which visitors can select and view video clips. There are areas...More

Fun museum about famous people from Oklahoma. Plenty of portraits and video presentations. I never thought I would see the Flaming Lips and Wiley Post in one museum. The videos are short but very informative. The building is nice old bank building. Admission is reasonable.

I liked this museum because it showcases Oklahomans. Some I knew about, others I didn't. It didn't take long and was a beautiful old building that has been repurposed.

Great museum, if you like looking at old oil paintings and portraits, mostly of people you never heard of before. And those of a few old stuffed shirts and silver spooners looking back at you from their faded picture frames which line the walls of...More
