Chickasaw Nation Cancellations & Closings

Chickasaw National Capitol

Due to caution in regards to COVID-19, the Chickasaw National Capitol is temporarily closed. 

In April 1898, construction began on the Chickasaw Nation Capitol in Tishomingo, Oklahoma. This Victorian, gothic-style structure is more than 8,000 square feet and was built of red granite from the Pennington Creek quarry of Gov. R. M. Harris. Granite blocks weighing 175 lbs. per cubic foot were pulled to the Capitol grounds by horses and mules. Today, the Chickasaw National Capitol serves as a museum and reminder that the Chickasaw people fought for their tribal identity and independence. Reservations are required for large groups planning to visit the Chickasaw National Capitol and guided tours are available upon request.

  • Currently closed out of an abundance of caution in regards to COVID-19.

In 1992, the museum was reclaimed by the Chickasaw Nation. The building’s historic significance and unique architecture led to its addition in the National Registry of Historic Buildings in 1971.

Today, the 8,000 square foot, historical building serves as a museum standing for the tribal identity and independence the Chickasaw people fought for. The largest exhibit focuses on Chickasaw government history from 1856-1907 with accurate replicas of Chickasaw Governor Douglas Johnston’s office and the National Secretary’s Vault. Other must-see exhibits include the Chickasaw Governor’s Portrait Exhibit on the first floor, the rotating photography exhibit on the second floor and the Chickasaw National Well Exhibit outside of the Capitol.

Large groups are encouraged to make tour reservations in advance.
