Description

If you love history, art and tales from the Old West, a stop at the Chisholm Trail Heritage Center is a must for you and your family. Come celebrate the 150th anniversary of the Chisholm Trail and the 20th anniversary of the Chisholm Trail Heritage Center during 2017. The Chisholm Trail Heritage Center has been named one of the "Top 10 Western Museum in the US" by True West Magazine in 2016 and an Outstanding Attraction by the Oklahoma Travel Industry Association. 

Experience the stampede in the center's 4D theater, eavesdrop on animatronic 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.

I love the Experience Theater where your chairs vibrate during the stampede and you feel a mist when they cross a river and smell the bacon frying.
