My mom lived in Grove for the last year's of her life and brought everyone, who came to visit, to see this beautiful museum she loved so much. When I came to visit she told me how much I would enjoy all there was to see there and I must say I was blown away at the work and attention to detail that's been done here. I've been to many American history museums and this is by far the best I've ever seen. I would say to anyone that you are really missing out on an Oklahoma and American treasure if you don't visit here. I was there in Oklahoma for 8 months and I went at least 5 or 6 times and saw something I missed each time. It really is a beautiful place.
