The Lincoln County Museum of Pioneer History is located in three historic buildings on Route 66 in Chandler. The buildings are over 100 years old and are some of the oldest structures in Lincoln County.  Each building is listed on the National Register and houses area history, as well as children's marionette exhibits, silent movies by cinematographer Benny Kent, Route 66 exhibits and materials for genealogy research.

The museum also features a marionette play presented with hand carved marionettes that survey the history of Oklahoma through a series of reports given by Miss Fay's students. Miss Fay Armstrong was an early day schoolteacher who used marionette shows to teach.
