National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum
Oklahoma City, OK
We got lost in here! Literally. How do we find the exit? Each gallery led to another and another and another! To describe the plethora of memorabilia from the REAL West to the fantasized (of the movies) West would be a weak attempt. For example, there was an entire gallery of barbed wire types. Think of this gallery as a huge kitchen with vertical thin cupboards. Pull out the hand pull, and you are looking at one of 1,300 different types of barbed wire. Talk about detail! Within the museum was a fabricated town from the frontier days. How could we not take a picture of the photo studio?
