Living History Presentations

Living history is a tool used by historians to engage and inspire the public through entertaining interactions that investigate the past. Living history characters can provide a view of the past through opinions, eye-witness accounts, clothing, and artifacts. This special programming makes history personal to the museum visitor and they will long remember their experience. It allows for the visual, sensory, and auditory learners to access the past in a way that no other education medium can match. All of our living history programs are designed for use by student and adult groups. The presentation will vary by the age of the audience. Living history programs are available to both student and adult groups either at the museum or as an outreach program. All museum programs directly address Oklahoma content standards and correlate with Oklahoma History Center exhibits. The fee for outreach programs to schools or organizations is $75 in the Oklahoma City metro area and $150 outside of the Oklahoma City metro area. Grant funding may be available for your outreach program.

A number of our programs involve the use of period or reproduction weapons. Please notify staff if this is a problem so we can help determine the best program to fit your needs.
