We enjoyed the exhibits covering all 5 tribes forced into Oklahoma during the Trail of tears, and learned a few things we didn't know. The building itself is historic. Bought some cool Native American made earrings at the gift shop. Since we're visiting in December we also went to the free xmas lights show in the park next door. That... More

If you want to learn about historical events and facts, this is the place to visit. The people working there are very knowledgeable about the history of the Five Tribes. Really enjoyed it. It's small but worth the stop.

The museum is small and does not have a lot of artifacts. The information provided about the history of the 5 tribes is very interesting and helpful in understanding their history.

This museum is in an old, historic two-story home. Lots and lots of provenance. First floor is a very well laid out story of the five civilized tribes and their forced relocation to the Oklahoma Territories and subsequent land reduction by the US government. Photos and display items tell a very accurate and moving story. Second floor (yes, they have... More

When I pulled out of the diner lot, I saw a sign pointing to this museum. I'm in town fir a tribal film festival and thought I should find out about the local culture. The $3 admission fee is well worth the look at the small exhibit and the upstairs art show.

It's a small building for a museum with limited displays. The displays that present are excellent. Upstairs is a gallery of local Indian art - elevator access. There is a very friendly staff to assist you.

If you are an Indian enthusiast you will love this museum. It's small but very detailed. The artwork by local artists is amazing. The story of relocation and freedmen told in great detail.
