Territorial Life in Oklahoma

Guthrie, OK, United States
17 Kudos
I am probably more of a fan of museums than most people, but I like to learn history and enjoy art. The Oklahoma Territorial Museum at Guthrie has the motto, "It's not the story you think you know," and for those who might have their Oklahoma Territory history shaped by the musical, "Oklahoma," there's a lot to learn here. At one point Oklahoma was not intended to become a state, but to serve as a place for Native tribal peoples displaced, usually forcibly, from their lands elsewhere. After the Land Run of 1889 opened up the territory to white settlement, Guthrie became the territorial capital and first state capital. The museum features several galleries, tours, and children's programs, and sponsors traveling exhibits.
