Oklahoma Territorial Museum

The Museum, through artifacts, photographs, and paintings tells the story of Oklahoma's territorial period. The facility covers approximately 10,000 square feet divided between two floors. The first floor presents exhibits embracing the first land run in the territories and the events leading up to the day, April 22, 1889. Exhibitions also cover the territorial lifestyle, including the homesteader and the urban aspect. Items related to territorial government, transportation, education, entertainment, and the statehood experience are presented in the second floor exhibits. Attached to the museum is the Historic Carnegie Library of Guthrie. Built in 1902, it hosted many important political and social events in early Oklahoma history and still houses its original furnishings.

The museum offers exhibits, tours, and educational and recreational events and programs.
