A Day at the Museum

A while back we went to the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum in Oklahoma City.  It is a great place to visit, and if you have the time you could spend the whole day there.  I am pretty sure that is why they have a little cafe' inside the museum. 

It has been a while since we were there, and I had forgotten how lost one can get in a museum. 

You know, in some museums they can be pretty persnickity about photos being taken.  I truly believe that one lady followed me around to make sure I didn't take photos in the prohibited areas.  I just didn't take many photos, but I did take a couple.

I just love this one.  You see it as soon as you enter the museum, and it almost takes my breath away each time I see it.

I didn't even realize this statue was there.  We didn't have much time in the museum that day, because we were with a group.  In order to fit as many things into the day as possible, the planners only allowed us 30 minutes at the museum.  Oh, we were so disappointed.  We have been there before, but most of the people in the group had not had the opportunity.

As we were on our way out, I saw this statue out of the corner of my eye and I ran for it.  At the time I didn't care if I missed the bus or not.  I had to get a photo of this statue. 

We made it to the bus on time, and then we went to our next stop.  I will share more photos another day.

    That museum is truly a rare treasure and should be visited by all who come to Okla. City. Maybe you can return soon and stay as long as you want. BTW, the food at the museum is great and I have been to banquets in the big hall, as well as retirement parties for co-workers in the smaller area. Keep showing the treasures of Oklahoma so that perhaps others will be inspired to visit here. There is a lot to do in Oklahoma.
