The Pioneer Woman Museum in Ponca City is dedicated to preserving women’s history and showcasing the historical and continued influence of women on the development of Oklahoma and the United States.

Outside the museum, view the Pioneer Woman Statue, a 30-foot tall work by artist Bryant Baker. “Confident” depicts a mother in sunbonnet holding her son’s hand as they walk towards the horizon. It was unveiled in 1930 and stands as a monument to the women who helped found Oklahoma as a state. 

Designed to represent the sunbonnet often worn by pioneer women and mimic its shape, the museum's entrance is a unique architectural accomplishment. Prominent throughout the museum, the phrase “I See No Boundaries” embodies the pioneer spirit. Interior exhibits showcase Oklahoma women who were pioneers in their respective fields, both on a state and national level.  

The Pioneer Woman Museum also hosts many events and educational classes through its education center. Craft demonstrations and interactive areas of the museum are open to anyone who wants to learn spinning, knitting or quilting.
