Membership Rates Effective January 1, 2020

After careful consideration, the OHS Board of Directors has decided to restructure our membership benefits and rates beginning January 1, 2020. These changes will allow us to continue providing our members with benefits that are both sustainable and meaningful. We compared our membership rates with those of similar organizations and decided that it was time to update our prices, which had not been increased in more than a decade. This will ensure that the OHS can continue to provide the quality exhibits, programming, and collections care that our members and the public expect from the state's flagship historical institution.

We appreciate your understanding and continued support as we work to maintain the standard of collecting, preserving, and sharing Oklahoma's rich history that you have come to know.
