We offer a comprehensive story line on Northwest Oklahoma history in our semi-permanent exhibits, which were developed through Oklahoma Humanities Council planning and implementation matching grants. One of these, “Northwest Passages,” received a Certificate of Commendation from the American Association of State and Local History in 1987. In 1993, the Oklahoma Historical Society named the museum the state’s best local history museum. We also periodically offer regional and national touring exhibits on subjects relevant to our mission.For travelers who use our online itinerary creator, Woodward holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Plains Indians and Pioneers Museum and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.
We also have art shows, competitions, and workshops with the support of grants from the Oklahoma Arts Council and community partners. In the summer, we also offer an annual Teacher’s Institute seminar in collaboration with Northwestern Oklahoma State University, entitled "Oklahoma Northwest," which provides professional development points to teachers and college credit to students.
