Here is a review from an user.
Had a great time here on a school field trip. Mr. Sapper made sure we learned a lot while keeping the students interested and engaged. Recommend for home school groups.
By appointment. Part of the Yukon, OK Historical Society along with the E.R.Berousek Farm Museum. All within a block of each other. All are a part of the growth anticipated along Route through downtown Yukon, OK. The Veterans Memorial is just through the entrance to The Yukon Cemetery on the left side.
Well worth the stop to see the home of the Sac and Fox sports legend. Please visit and support this treasure.
The history of Shamrock is fascinating and very well presented. From Senior photographs of the school to the Main Street businesses at the peak of the oil boom. The rock frames of the car dealership and school gym still stands. Also still in tact is the old bank vault minus the hole in the back where one of the Oklahoma outlaws broke through and got away with the loot. You will also see a fantastic display of prehistoric fossils and Indian artifacts that you won't find anywhere else. Open on Saturdays from A.M. 'till 4 P.M. and IT'S FREE!
Its a beautiful local piece of history. Most original artifacts and furnishings. Military gets in free in uniform, so probably a good choice for graduation day.
Did a live show there! Lots of history too! First place the u.s. government dropped bombs on it's own soil! Sad so many innocent people lost there lives!
Greenwood rising is a museum, cultural center and a place of remembrance. It focuses primarily on the events leading up to and including the Tulsa massacre. The images, the videos and the curated tour is both informative and disturbing. For that reason, I recommend being careful bringing young kids to this location. It’s a shame because everyone needs to know what happened. So parents go there first before deciding if your children should attend. The tour elaborates on the environment that led to that fateful day. It also goes into very painful but informative detail. It includes first hand accounts of the events in a very human and eye opening way. However embedded within that tour are glimpses of what Greenwood was and what it can be again. I highly recommend both black and white go there at least once
Worth the stop! I love history and museums, so this was an automatic on the "things to do in Tulsa". Self guided tour and plenty to see and learn about in an historic home renovated for the purposes of its use today as a museum. The docents let us know there will soon be some new additions to museums permanent display/collection; so I must visit again next time I'm in Tulsa.
Very interesting collection and our host was very informative.
I love historical houses, especially when the docents are eager to impart wonderful information about the house and its owners. The Kell House is a beautiful place to visit. The ladies joked that I now more more about Wichita Falls than most of it's townspeople. Worth the visit.
Nice museum, not too big but interesting.
Great museum on local history. Nice staff and great displays. I learned a lot and had a good time.
Such a pretty building! The coffee shop is great, and the GM is really nice! The history is super cool, and it's a place that has a little bit for everyone. They're even adding lofts!
January , I had no idea Denison was Eisenhower’s birthplace. I am thrilled to have been able to walk through the meticulously put together history museum of this Great American Treasure. He saved our country. Thank you Denison for enlightening me on his early life and later accomplishments. It made me want to read more. My tour guide Jennifer was so knowledgeable and answered all my questions but more so she told me stories I had never known. Wonderful visit. Oh and I love all my items I bought at the gift shop!
Very interesting!. Thanks to Sharon!)
This library is a small town gem! They have wonderful programs for families and even have a circut machine for anyone to use. I made t-shirts for my kids
Only real spot in town for tourists. Interesting place right in the middle of a small yet historic town. Recommend to go at least once if you're a resident.
