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 And Western Heritage Museum Reviews & Ratings
Popularly known as National cowboys Museum. I just loved the Museum especially the cultural heritage of indigenous peoples. The day we visited the Museum, we were entertained by the flute, solo and group dance and singing of native Oklahoman. The performances were mesmerizing. The museum is very beautiful and gigantic. One can easily spend 2/3 hrs here in the Museum.
Enormous museum; my boyfriend and I didn't even have time to walk the entire place! Lots and lots of beautiful paintings and other artwork! There's an original, although highly restored, stagecoach at the entrance to the exhibits that you can actually sit in. In addition to the lovely artwork, I really enjoyed the exhibits dedicated to different movie stars showcasing their careers in western films. My boyfriend and I will definitely come back as soon as we can to see the other half of the museum that we weren't able to see our first time around!
Wow! My first visit and wish I had arrived earlier in the day as I needed more than the 2 hours that remained before closing. There are small to huge sculptures, fine art oils, lots and lots of guns of all sorts. Saddles from plain to wonderfully tooled leather to lavishly decorated with sterling silver. One section had great displays of Western Movies. Kinda fun as well as informative. I really love all of the Native American artifacts, clothing and pottery. Descriptions are informative and easy to understand. I will visit again my next time in OKC, as I need to see the rest of the galleries!
Kinda fun as well as informative. I really love all of the Native American artifacts, clothing and pottery. . We actually went through it 3 times because she loved the sound of the wooden planks under her chair and the fact that she could look in every window. I learned a lot and had a great time. To top it off, it's free! Plan a long visit! Reasonable howdy access, too.
Outstanding collection of western art and paintings. Huge selection of cowboy artifacts, firearms, western actors and more. If you like western culture, you'll love this museum and all it has to offer. A fantastic combination of art and culture. Spent 6 hours roaming the galleries. The paintings were breathtaking. A great way to spend a rainy day. I highly recommend attending for all ages.
