Mission Statement

The mission of the Oklahoma Heritage Association is to preserve Oklahoma's unique history while promoting pride in our great state.

Description

The Gaylord-Pickens Oklahoma Heritage Museum is a high-tech, interactive exhibitory that provides visitors the opportunity to experience Oklahoma’s history through its people. Visitors meet both famous and everyday Oklahomans whose lives have impacted our state, country and world.

Opened in 2007 and voted the 2008 Best New Attraction, the Museum is run by the Oklahoma Heritage Association.

Founded in 1927 to create an Oklahoma Hall of Fame, the Association has grown its programming and influence, becoming the leaders in publishing Oklahoma's history, offering more than $500,00 in scholarships each year to high school students, inspiring students to learn about Oklahoma heroes through Heritage Week competitions, and developing an awards process that honors educators, individuals and organizations committed to preserving state and local history.
