National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum
Formerly known as the National Cowboy Hall of Fame, the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum in Oklahoma City's Adventure District features an internationally-renowned collection of Western art and artifacts. Since its opening in 1955, millions of visitors from around the world have explored this unique Western museum.
Permanent galleries at the museum include the American Cowboy, American Rodeo, Art of the American West, Fine Firearms, Gallery of the Frontier West, Native American Gallery, Prix de West, Silberman Native American Art Gallery, Western Performers Gallery and monumental sculptures.
The National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum is home to several immersive children's exhibits. Check out Prosperity Junction, a fully constructed frontier cattle town featuring 19 buildings. With expansive 40-foot ceilings, the town stretches from an industrial section with a railroad depot, livery stable and blacksmith shop, to a residential section with homes, a church and a one-room schoolhouse. Other children’s exhibits include a chuck wagon display and a fully furnished bunkhouse.
Exhibitions change continually, with several new exhibits on display every few months. See significant works by master artists Charles Russell, Frederic Remington and Albert Bierstadt. Begin and end your visit at James Earle Fraser's awe-inspiring sculpture "The End of the Trail," depicting a lone Native American on a weary horse.
Attend annual events like the popular Chuck Wagon Gathering & Children's Cowboy Festival, or the prestigious Prix de West exhibition, an invitational art exhibit of over 250 Western paintings and sculptures by contemporary Western artists. The star-studded Western Heritage Awards honors hall of fame inductees and the year's best in literature, music, film and TV every April.
The National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum is also home to a museum store, scenic gardens and a restaurant, all open daily.
