Chisholm Trail Heritage Center
If you love history, art and tales from the Old West, a stop at Oklahoma's Outstanding Attraction, the Chisholm Trail Heritage Center & Garis Gallery of the American West, is a must for you and your family. In 2017, come celebrate the 150th anniversary of the Chisholm Trail and the 20th anniversary of the Chisholm Trail Heritage Center in Duncan, OK.
Experience the stampede in the center's 4D theater, eavesdrop on animatronics Jesse Chisholm and Tex in the Campfire Theater, while the chuck wagon makes a ruckus in the background. Try your roping skills from a genuine leather saddle as you attempt to rope "Hollywood" the longhorn steer. Step back in time in the Duncan General Store and play a game of checkers. You can also wander the maze of the Garis Gallery of the American West, which features historic artwork by such legendary cowboy artists as George Catlin, Frederic Remington, Charles Russell, John Coleman and Paul Moore. A featured Oklahoma artist is presented every six to eight weeks in the Garis Gallery.
Be sure to see the iconic "On the Chisholm Trail" bronze monument, a life-size tribute to the American cowboy and cattle drive. This exhibit sits on the exterior grounds, south of the newly-renovated portico and was created by Oklahoma artist Paul Moore. You can learn more about the art and the artists through a self-guided tour.
Stop by the Chisholm Trail Heritage Center gift shop to pick up one-of-a-kind Western items.
