The J.M. Davis Arms & Historical Museum is the largest privately-owned arms museum that conveys Oklahoma's unique history. From the smallest commercially produced handgun in the world to a replica of an 1840s gunsmith shop, the museum's collections take visitors on a walk through time. 

Check out the "Believe It Or Not Oddities" gallery of outlaw guns, see Native American artifacts and Western memorabilia and view collections like antique music boxes, musical instruments and 1,200 steins from all over the world. The museum's Cooweescoowee District of the Nation exhibit brings 200 years of regional Cherokee history to visitors. You'll also find an extensive firearms research library in addition to a well-stocked gift shop.

On weekends in April through November, guests can watch the Tri-State Gunfighters and Reenactors stage an exciting old fashioned shootout. Admission is always free, but donations are accepted. Advance group reservations are appreciated.
