Oklahoma City is the perfect place to start – or continue – your love affair with the Wild West! The historic Land Run of 1889 started it all as 50,000 homesteaders gathered at the boundaries of the “Unassigned Lands” to stake a claim on the American frontier. By nightfall, nearly 10,000 people had gathered to create a community – Oklahoma City. The pioneering spirit that drove men and woman in search of new opportunities resonates in the heart of the city, creating a legacy of passion and pride that touches all who live here.
Celebrate the history of one of the most beloved eras in America at the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum. Featuring one of the most comprehensive collections of Western art in the world, the museum depicts the rugged spirit and rich influences of cowboy culture.
