The past comes alive at the Oklahoma History Center, Oklahoma’s state museum of history.  At the Oklahoma History Center, discover the people and stories that make Oklahoma truly unique.  From oil and gas to aviation, from the Dust Bowl to space exploration, from tornadoes to the Land Run, from Native American Indians to Route 66, there’s a story of triumph and tragedy, hope and heartache, famous and infamous around every corner.

The 215,000 sq ft Oklahoma History Center is a testament to the indomitable spirit that built Oklahoma.  With four permanent galleries and a special exhibits hall, guests will explore the more than 200 hands-on interactives and 50 subjects that tell the stories of Oklahoma and its people.  The history center truly has something for everyone, with special events that appeal to all ages.  From Civil War Day to Rockabilly concerts, there is always something going on at the Oklahoma History Center.
