The Museum of the Red River
celebrates the world's artistic heritage, while emphasizing the contributions made to this heritage by the native peoples of the Americas.
Artifacts and related materials dating from prehistoric to contemporary times are collected, preserved, researched and exhibited in order to foster aesthetic appreciation, stimulate curiosity, and inspire further study. Complementary programs and activities provide additional learning opportunities to our audiences.
The Museum is also home to Acrocanthosaurus atokensis, the official State Dinosaur of Oklahoma. The most complete specimen of this 110 million year old fossil was recovered less than ten miles away. A full size cast of the skeleton, nearly forty feet long and fourteen feet high, is displayed along with natural history specimens from around the world.
This website provides but a glimpse of the Museum and its offerings. We hope users will be inspired, and accept this as an invitation to come visit in person.
