Heritage Tourism

From a rich history rooted in Native traditions and Western heritage to the construction of Route 66 that connected Oklahoma with immigrants and travelers, Oklahoma continues to celebrate its rich beginnings. Immerse yourself in American Indian culture at one of the many tribal museums across the Sooner State, or explore the state's rugged Western heritage at the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum in Oklahoma City or the Chisholm Trail Heritage Center in Duncan.

Uncover the outstanding presence of worldwide influence on the state through an assortment of festivals and attractions. Celebrate German heritage at the renowned Tulsa Oktoberfest or hear traditional pipe band competitions at Scottish festivals celebrating Celtic history. On any given weekend, you can watch impressive displays of ancient ranch practices at a rodeo or one of the many Wild West events throughout the state. Find Native American shops using techniques passed down from past generations or step into a living history museum and come face-to-face with a bison herd that’s been roaming the same land for decades. From tasty to educational to sacred, history is alive in Oklahoma.
