We visited this facility today and found it to be a hidden gem in Kingfisher. The historic displays were wonderful and the pioneer town was like stepping back to a time when things were much simpler. The tour of Governor Seay's mansion was both detailed and informative. The museum staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. We would recommend this find to anyone with an interest in history or just looking for a chance to learn something new about Oklahoma!
