Five reasons to take your Valentine on a day-date to the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum this year

Posted on January 23, 2018 by Kirsten Holder in




  1. The Museum’s galleries offer more than enough conversation starters to create new and exciting ways to interact with your Valentine. Continue your date with a serene and delicious lunch from The Museum Grill. Do not forget to wear comfortable shoes – there is a lot to explore!








2. February is the perfect month to celebrate love! From February 1 – 14, bring your Valentine to the Museum and show your love for your favorite piece of art or artifact. Pick up a heart at Visitor Services, leave it by your selection, and share on social media using #MyWest and #HeartsForArt. While visiting, pick up the “Find the Love” guide, a selection of art from the Museum’s collection that speaks of love.






3. The Museum’s Garden Gallery – a true city oasis – boasts more than 37 acres of professionally designed and manicured gardens complete with sculptures, waterfalls, benches for resting, and plants native to the American West. Trust us, your Valentine will thank you!











4. If you don’t want your date to end, how about dinner and a movie? Guests can whet their appetites on February 8 with a scrumptious buffet prepared by The Petroleum Club of Oklahoma City while watching a special film screening of John Wayne’s classic, The Searchers (1956). There is something romantic about Western classics and delightful fare! Do not forget to reserve your spot today.








5. Turquoise is a Western girl’s diamond! The Museum Store has one of the best selections of genuine turquoise jewelry in Oklahoma. From Bisbee and Sleeping Beauty to Kingman and Royston turquoise, you are sure to fall in love with a truly one-of-a-kind piece of wearable art. No two stones are alike, making each piece incredibly unique. Shop in store and online at
