The Oklahoma History Center (OHC) is the history museum of the state of Oklahoma. Located on an 18-acre (7.3 ha) plot across the street from the Governor's mansion at 800 Nazih Zuhdi Drive in Oklahoma City, the current museum opened in 2005 and is operated by the Oklahoma Historical Society (OHS). It focuses on the history of Oklahoma from ancient Native American tribal nations to the present day. The Oklahoma Historical Society was founded in 1893 by members of the Territorial Press Association in Guthrie, Oklahoma, then the capital of Oklahoma Territory, but moved to Oklahoma City after statehood was declared in November 1907.{ https://www.oklahoman.com/article/862192/moving-the-capital}}

  • Actually went thinking it would be boring and corny but ended with a completely different thought. It was fun and amazing, it was interactive and educational. It even allowed me to introduce my Gen Z 16 yr old to a whole world of things. We had a blast and highly recommend.
  • The family and I enjoyed this museum very much. We learned a lot about the history of Oklahoma. We ended up spending nearly the whole day going through the exhibits. The kids enjoyed the hands on history parts.
