History & Culture

Chickasaw Country is rich with Native American culture and Western history. You can spend days going through all of the spectacular, unique locations and museums.

The Chickasaw Cultural Center deserves a day to explore the rich history and culture of the Chickasaw Nation.  Tishomingo also houses several locations special to the history of the Chickasaw people, including the Chickasaw Capitol Building.

For western history, the Chisholm Trail Heritage Center will take you back in time, and the Gene Autry Museum will remind you of simpler days and beloved movies.

There is no shortage of fine art, either. Exhibit C, located in Bricktown, Oklahoma City, is a beautiful gallery of contemporary Native American art, and you can take your favorite pieces home with you. The Goddard Center houses many beautiful art pieces, as well as educational classes.

Learn and grow during your time in Chickasaw Country with our many opportunities to enjoy history and culture.
