This Week: As Kids Take Over The Cowboy
OKLAHOMA CITY –The National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum, or The Cowboy, is filling one of Oklahoma’s hottest months with activities to keep young ones busy and wanting to come back for more, while keeping everyone in the family cool. There’s youth-focused fun throughout the museum daily, with extra-special activations every Saturday.
Activities this week include:
Kids-Only Secret Messages
Exploring the Museum has never been more fun! Each kid gets a decoder spy glass which will allow them to “decode” secret messages next art and artifacts throughout the Museum.
Kid Food at the Grill
There’s an expanded kids menu at the grill with choices that are sure to please even the pickiest palate.

Special Saturday Activities – July 13
American Cowboy Warrior
10:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.
Cowboys face whatever challenges come their way, and now kids can test their mettle against slightly more modern challenges at the National Cowboy Museum. As a part of our month-long “Kids Take Over The Cowboy” experience, kids will have the chance to work their way through an inflatable obstacle course. After burning off some energy, kids can cool down with FREE snow cones. Activities are free with Museum admission and free for members. While supplies last.
As always, kids 5 and under are free, and children 6-12 are only $5.75. Family Museum Memberships are $10 off through July and include free Museum admission for up to two adults and four children for a year, a 15% discount at the Museum Store and Museum Grill and more.
