Born from the single gunshot that launched the historic Land Run of 1889, Oklahoma City’s history and heritage is uniquely Western. And the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum is the ideal place to experience the legacy of the American West. With more than 28,000 Western and American Indian art works and artifacts, it’s home to one of the most comprehensive collections of Western art in the world. The museum is a can’t-miss destination with fine art, pop culture, Native American objects, historical cowboy gear, an amazing gift shop and tasty dining.
