IMG_7714 Oklahoma City, OK – The Museum’s collections focus on preserving and interpreting the heritage of the American West and they succeed beautifully.

The building is huge and filled with the most gorgeous artwork and sculptures. This is a definite must if you ever come through Oklahoma City. Even if you’re not a fan of western art, this museum will win you over.

They haIMG_7697ve a bank, the Marshall’s office, general store, church, doctor’s office, saloon, hotel and more. We had a great time in the saloon as you can see in these pictures.

IMG_7712Another area is set up like a rodeo arena and honors all the rodeo riders throughout the years.

You aren’t allowed to take pictures in several areas because of copyright laws; but I can guarantee you will love this museum.
