Field Trips and Museum Tours at the Oklahoma History Center

Come investigate Oklahoma’s past! We recommend school groups explore the museum using one of our activity sheets or the Explore History app. Oklahoma History Center exhibits and programs address the majority of Oklahoma Academic Standards for every subject! Use ourTeachers’ Gallery Guides and Pre-visit/Follow-up Lessons to plan and prepare for your field trip. Costs

Thanks to a grant from the Inasmuch Foundation, Oklahoma public, private, and homeschool groups of 10 or more who schedule their field trips with the education department at least two weeks in advance will receive free admission for students, teachers, and chaperones. Chaperones must be at least eighteen years of age and we recommend a student to teacher/chaperone ratio of 5:1, but require 10:1.

Groups that do not schedule their visit with the museum will pay the posted admission fees. General admission to the Oklahoma History Center is $7 for adults, $5 for seniors or adult groups of ten or more, and $4 for students. Veterans, active-duty military, and their dependents receive free admission with ID.

  • Trunks are free to teachers, librarians, home school co-ops, and pre-service teachers.
  • Trunks may be picked up at the Oklahoma History Center or sent to your school for the cost of shipping.
  • Trunks are checked out for up to one week.

All trunks include:

The curriculum includes activities appropriate for all students, K through 12th grade, and all teachers who have checked out our trunks found them to be valuable tools for their classrooms. While our trunks focus on social studies curriculum, they are also interdisciplinary. Language arts, math, science, physical education, art, music, gifted, and special education teachers have used our trunks in their classrooms.Interested in a trunk or have questions?
