Inaugural Impressions

The Oklahoma History Center Museum will open a new exhibit on Friday, June 7.

Inaugural Impressions will explore the lives and contributions of Oklahoma’s first ladies and gentleman while their spouses served as governors. The exhibit will also feature an array of gowns worn by first ladies from the Oklahoma Historical Society collections.

Interactive exhibit components will allow children and adults to try on clothing from other eras as if they were attending an inaugural ball.

Inaugural Impressions will be open in the Sam Noble Gallery of the Oklahoma History Center Museum through May 30, 2025.
