Harn Homestead

The Harn Homestead and 1889ers Museum is where city benefactor William Fremont Harn developed this quintessential frontier homestead. The estate contains a one-room schoolhouse, a grandiose Victorian mansion and a petting-zoo/farm on the grounds. The land was claimed during the Oklahoma Land Run of 1889 and today the complex offers hands-on education about the work ethic during the late 19th Century as well as providing field trips and day camps. The 9.4 acre facility is also available for corporate events, weddings, birthday parties, etc.

Oklahoma Firefighters Museum

Quite possibly, this is one museum the kids will not mind visiting because firemen sometimes hold a special mystique for them. The State Firefighters' Association runs this museum that depicts how firefighting has evolved throughout history. Exhibits of antique, century-old fire engines will amaze and educate visitors; one of the most popular exhibits is Oklahoma's first fire station, a rustic log cabin built just after the Civil War. In addition to unique items like a collection of uniform shoulder patches and fire alarms, the historical collection shows little-known aspects that accompany the profession.

Museum of Osteology

The only skeleton museum in the United States, the Museum of Osteology is a great place for people of all ages to learn about phlanges, metatarsals and carpals. With over 400 skulls and 300 complete skeletons on display, the museum makes learning about the natural world fun and a little macabre all at the same time. Visitors can enjoy some hands-on learning at the Explorers Corner, where you can handle bones from various North American mammalian species. On your way out, the gift shop is a great place to get someone something unique.
