Description

The Five Civilized Tribes Museum in Muskogee is a celebration of the rich culture and heritage of the five tribes linked to the area - Cherokee, Chickasaw, Choctaw, Muscogee Creek and Seminole. The museum honors these tribes through the display of artifacts that convey their unique history in Oklahoma. Visit the museum to browse one-of-a-kind artifacts housed in a building as historic as its contents. The structure that now houses the museum was built in 1875 as the first Union Agency building constructed by the U.S. Government to house the Superintendence of the Five Civilized Tribes.

In addition to housing handmade baskets, pottery, paintings and sculpture that portray Native American life, the museum hosts several events on-site to celebrate these tribes. Lectures, workshops and four major art shows are presented annually at the museum for those interested in learning more about the American Indian heritage that helped shape Oklahoma history. Attend any of these events to experience the special impact these five tribes had on the area, both artistically and historically.
