The Museum of the Red River was established in 1974 to contribute to the knowledge and appreciation of the cultural heritage of the Americas. Visitors head to this Idabel museum to view one of its most popular displays, a fossil cast of the official Oklahoma state dinosaur, the "Acrocanthosaurus atokensis." The first fossil was found near Atoka, and the most complete skeleton of this dinosaur was found less than twenty miles away from the museum.

The Museum of the Red River also features ethnographic art from North, Central, and South America, with comparative materials from Africa, East Asia, and the South Pacific. Its collections are particularly strong in regional archaeological materials, Plains Indian garments, Southwestern Pueblo ceramics, and Precolumbian Middle and South American artifacts.

Rotating exhibits are drawn from the museum's permanent collection of over 30,000 objects, while educational programs introduce visitors to the world of America's native cultures and illustrate the remarkable achievements of both ancient and modern peoples.
