Just across the street from the State Capitol, the State Museum of History presents a comprehensive historical overview of Oklahoma, from prehistoric times to oil field wildcatters to the space program. Interpretive exhibits, artifacts, original art, and special weekend programs provide an entertaining and informative experience.

Unique exhibits include an original bison hide teepee, a Civil War cannon, and wagon used in two land runs, Native American murals, historic quilts and much more. This wonderful museum highlights Oklahoma's multi-cultural heritage, their early settlement, agricultural and military history, and of course, Native American history. Check out the life-size murals by the Kiowa Five.

The museum contains the largest photographic reference section in the state, as well as an extensive library. The photo library is the largest in Oklahoma, and contains thousands of historic Native American photographs.
