It is impossible to come to Oklahoma and not think about cowboys. While you’re here, spend a day at the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum learning something about the men and women who won the West. Browse the museum’s outstanding Art of the American West collection, which includes Gerald Balcier’s 18-foot-tall marble “Canyon Princess” statue, tour the American Rodeo Gallery and take the kids through the interactive Children’s Cowboy Corral. This is no small collection of spurs and boots; the William S. and Ann Atherton Art of the American West Gallery contains over 2,000 pieces, all reflecting life on the frontier. If at all possible, take a peek inside the Special Events Center, where five 18' x 46' triptychs by artist Wilson Hurley are on permanent display. The paintings—all of Western landscapes—transform what would otherwise be a standard ballroom into something truly unique.
