Oklahoma City's Cowboy Culture

As a result of the early settlers that traveled across the trails of Oklahoma, the western and cowboy culture still remains. Visitors find this western culture diverse and fascinating as they see prominent reminders in art, statues, rodeos, museums and other unique places.

Express Ranches Clydesdale Center

The Express Ranch is home to 14 beautiful Clydesdale horses, living in style in a renovated 1936 barn. Includes a large loft with historical exhibits and a gift shop. Clydesdales weigh in at over 2,000 lbs, twice what a regular horse would weigh. Admission is free. Open 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday.

Harn Homestead Museum

The Great Land Run of 1889 was an exciting event! This claimed homestead features historic era-related items and is listed in the National Register of Historic Places. The Harn Homestead is an Oklahoma treasure that celebrates the territorial history of Oklahoma.

The Museum offers visitors 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. Tours are given from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. Monday - Friday. Cost is $5 per person. Children three and under are free. Please call for an appointment.

Address:1721 North Lincoln Boulevard, Oklahoma City, (405) 235-4058,
