This is a really thorough and interesting museum. It ranges from the history of Oklahoma to important industries in the State. It includes large companies like Sonic and other famous individuals as well. The grounds are also really nice.

This is a wonderful place to visit with history on several famous Oklahomans. Some of the highlights I enjoyed were the Hollywood section and the First Ladies of Oklahoma dresses. Many different exhibits, that everyone in the family will enjoy from children to grandparents.
