Touring along the way we’ve seen all types of museums from extremely professional to homegrown. So when when we roll into Oklahoma City and realize that there is a cowboy and western museum we aren’t quite sure what to expect. We decide to check it out.
The National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum is no small deal! We are blown away by the comprehensive nature of this extraordinary facility. Look in storefronts in Prosperity Junction a replica of a turn-of-the-century cattle town. Visit an extensive array of paintings and sculpture. See exhibits on everything from bunkhouse life, to rodeos, to the West in movies. The vast array of exhibits includes many other things as well such as firearms, Native American art, the military in the West, and roping.
If you go, and I highly recommend it, allow plenty of time and be sure you pick up a map of the facility when you buy your ticket. You’ll need it.
