Activities at the History Center

Continuing with the family-friendly entertainment, the Oklahoma History Center, located across Northeast 23rd street from the mansion, will bring the past to life. Along the Red River Journey visitors will enjoy interaction with living historians representing WWII, cowboys, land run participants, nineteenth century American Indians, antebellum musicians, the Civil War, plein air painters, and more. The history adventure continues inside the History Center with learning stations, hands-on activities, demonstrations, games, storytelling, and unique exhibits about Oklahoma.

Some new and exciting features this year will include an outdoor music venue that highlights musicians from our great state, including local high school bands, Kyle Dillingham, Sarah Dye, and Carter Sampson. Guests can hunt for hats throughout the exhibits, make their own hat, and enjoy a passport as they visit the living historians along the Oklahoma History Center's Red River Journey.
