The museum's task is ambitious - to collect and preserve and interpret the artifacts of the American West. It's 19,000 metres square space exhibits over 2000 works of western art - paintings and sculptures - by 19th and 20th century artists and native American art. It also has an extensive collection of native American art, which hlps explore their culture, clothing, spirituality and music. The West as seen through the eyes of non-native Americans is exhibited in terms of explorations, notable figures, hunting, photography, military campaigns, and also an exhibit on the women who helped settle the west. And finally, there's the exhibit of the ubiquitous cowboy - transport, weaponry, dress, lifestyle, and cultural influence.

National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum, Oklahoma City Reviews - Write a Review
We love to come here and spend the afternoon with our kids. They love the children's area and the old West Town. I love the cafe and gift store. They have a lot of amazing art exhibits that change throughout the year. The also have an outstanding gun collection. If you aren't from Oklahoma I highly recommend visiting here while you're in town. The people that work here will chat with you and tell you a lot about local history and you can enjoy the beautiful grounds as well. They have a Chuck Wagon festival in May that is the highlight of my 3yr olds year. The season pass is very reasonable so if you plan to come more than once go for it.
Impressive architecture, beautiful grounds. Way more gallery art, some of it for sale, than actual artifacts. That was surprising and disappointing. Lots of unoccupied space. I'd like to return over a period of years and see how it's used. First class gift shop.
Incredible presentation of all facets of Rodeo information! There's something of interest for every visitor... no matter the age or depth of understanding... it's fascinating!!!! One thing to note - be sure to give yourself enough time to take advantage of all of the exhibits... it's an amazing experience you won't want to miss...
On a Sunday, we arrived at high noon. The staff is friendly and informative. The museum is amazing. The native planted grounds are gorgeous. We were there 4 hours and still saw only half of what we wanted to see. So happy to see child inspired exhibits and things you can touch. I so wanted to take photos...saw one sign stating no. We will go back very soon. Oh...very chilly inside, take a sweater. A must for the bucket list or family outing, or a first date. Thank you Oklahoma and all donors of this project.
Went to see the Jerome Tiger exhibit Not at all disappointed. Biggest display of his work anywhere Also loved the western art, especially the Remington exhibit which showed the whole range of his work from illustrations in Harpers Weekly, to fine art and of course his iconic sculptures. Also was struck by the Indian on horseback sculpture at the entrance : "End of the Trail" Cettainly belongs in Oklahoma.
