Oklahoma City Culture Boxes Are Back and Available at the Oklahoma History Center

OKLAHOMA CITY — The popularity of the Oklahoma City Culture Box has spurred a second run of these one-of-a-kind gift boxes now available for purchase at partnering cultural attractions, including the Oklahoma History Center (OHC). Just in time for the spring and summer gift-giving season—Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, graduation, weddings and more—the OKC Culture Box is the ultimate gift that recipients will be raving about.

This collaborative project, created by Science Museum Oklahoma, Oklahoma City Museum of Art, Oklahoma History Center, Oklahoma Contemporary, National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum, Oklahoma City National Memorial Museum and Oklahoma City Zoo and Botanical Garden, celebrates Oklahoma City’s diverse cultural community. It highlights the enriching experiences available, featuring an array of interests from art to science and western culture to wildlife!

Each OKC Culture Box is a treasure trove of valuable tickets and unique souvenirs including:

  • Oklahoma History Center: Two general admission tickets to the museum dedicated to Oklahoma’s distinct history of Native cultures, pioneers, aviation, commerce and much more. Plus, a container of Bye Buggy Bye, a natural insect repellant proudly made in Oklahoma!
  • Science Museum Oklahoma: Two general admission tickets to the state’s only hands-on science museum and one of the largest science museums in the nation plus, a festive drink tumbler.
  • Oklahoma City Museum of Art: Be ready for an immersive art experience with two general admission tickets and a set of temporary tattoos inspired by Dale Chihuly, whose iconic glass sculptures are just some of the treasures to be seen in the museum’s collection. Admission is free for kids under 18.
  • Oklahoma Contemporary: Liven up your walls with a limited-edition poster by the king of California cool and Oklahoma City’s hometown son, Ed Ruscha. Explore creativity, culture and contemporary art through exhibitions, programs, classes and camps in one of the most stunning buildings in the state. Admission is always free.
  • National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum: Two general admission tickets to the nation’s premier institution of Western history and art, as well as a canvas #HashtagTheCowboy tote.
  • Oklahoma City National Memorial Museum: Two tickets to one of Oklahoma City’s most notable destinations that stands as a celebrated example of a memorial honoring those who were killed, those who survived and those changed forever by the April 19, 1995, bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building; a “Sacred Ground, Common Ground” magnet; and a deck of Better Conversation cards.
  • Oklahoma City Zoo and Botanical Garden: Two general admission tickets to explore the zoo and discover more than 1,200 animals from around the world. Also includes a custom animal Mold-A-Matic retro souvenir and an OKC Zoo Key that can be used to unlock 20 recorded messages throughout the park.

The OKC Culture Box is priced at $50 and include contents that have a retail value of more than $200. Boxes are limited, with each of the seven institutions selling just 100 boxes. They are available while supplies last. All proceeds for the sale of OKC Culture Boxes will remain at the attraction where it was sold.
