Located on 18 acres right across from the Oklahoma Capitol, the History Center is a 215,000-square-foot learning center that houses five state-of-the-art galleries, featuring everything from American Indian and African American history to information on the military in Oklahoma, the state's oil and gas industry, aerospace and some of its most important citizens and points of heritage. Exhibits change regularly.

Just outside the museum, visitors can take the Red River Journey, which offers a walking tour of the Red River Valley's landforms, vegetation and important locations. The grounds also house a variety of sculptures and an outdoor oilfield exhibit, complete with drilling derricks and related machinery.
