Smithsonian quality exhibits that bring to life the voice and visions of Oklahoma. Stories, spirits, triumphs and tragedy…the Oklahoma History Center is your opportunity to experience Oklahoma’s inspiring and adventurous past.
Located on 18 acres across from the Capital building, the History Center is a beautifully designed, self-guided exploration of Oklahoma – past to present. Within our 215,000 square-foot learning center are five extraordinary, state-of-the-art galleries housing more than 200 hands-on audio, video and computer activities.
Outside the museum, the Red River Journey offers visitors a walking tour of the Red River Valley featuring land forms, vegetation and important historical locations. The grounds also include an outdoor oilfield exhibit with drilling derricks, a portable derrick and machinery associated with Oklahoma oil explorations.
The Oklahoma History Center is conveniently located on the northeast corner of N.E. 23rd & Lincoln Boulevard, across the street from the Governor's Mansion. Motor coach parking is available, and the Center offers food and beverages at the Winnie Mae Café on the third floor.
The Harn Homestead is an Oklahoma treasure that celebrates the territorial history of Oklahoma offering a “hands-on” and “minds-on” experience. Visitors share in the abundance of a territorial farm, the brilliance of a one-room school house, the grace of a Victorian home, and the waste-not want-not ethic of a territorial farm family. There is no place else in Oklahoma that can offer this experience which captures the spirit of the brave men, women, and children who settled this state.
Group tours (15 or more people) are available by appointment only and can be scheduled any day and time of the week. To schedule a group tour, please call 405-235-4058 or click here.
