It’s tempting to pass this up even though it is right next door to the majestic Chickasaw Courthouse. It has - inside - the original Council House (us pale-faces call it a courthouse). Yes the actual, real, original log Council House. Originally it was over in now Milburn where the Chickasaw White House is. Emma was our guide. She is amazing. She is not only elegant and knowledgeable but very humbled by her Chickasaw heritage. I learned more from her than anyone else concerning the early day Chickasaws. She even knew the burial customs. I had asked this question at the other various Chickasaw places I visited and received conflicting information. Buy your souvenirs here. I did. Best selection and moderately priced. Thank you my new ehoo Indian friend Ima aka Emma.

We took some friends with us to see the Capital building and was told abou the Council House Museum. We all decided to go there also and was so glad we did. It was a great place to learn about the history of the Chickasaw people. We had a wonderful guide that told us everything we ever wondered about and more. It would be a great place to take the time to go and visit. Kids would love to go there also because of all the things to see. They also have a gift shop that is full of interesting items. Go and make a day of it. You will be glad you did.

This is a great museum on the grounds of the Chickasaw National Capital Building. The major attraction of this museum is that it houses the original Chickasaw Nation Council House built in what was then Indian Territory in the mid 1800s. The old council house was preserved and now stands in the main hall of this museum.
holds one of the largest collections of Chickasaw art, artifacts and archive materials. Experience the first Chickasaw Council House built in Indian Territory,

The museum also houses artifacts tracing the history and culture of the Chickasaw people and contemporary Chickasaw artwork. You can explore Chickasaw history and culture at the museum and learn more about the Chickasaw people.

The museum gift shop offers a variety of souvenirs, books, music, and Chickasaw language materials. We also have pottery, jewelry, beadwork and other artwork by Chickasaw artists.
