This museum has good displays of the rich heritage of Osage County, Osage history and ranchers in the county. Pawhuska was the home of the first Boy Scout troop in America and this museum has neat sculptures depicting scouting.

We really enjoyed walking thru this museum. There were various displays of the history of the oil boom in Oklahoma. Plus a lot of western artifacts.

They have some displays regarding the history of the town. We actually learned more by stopping at the Marland Home in Ponca City about the boom town of Pawhuska than we did in their museum.

Museum is currently adding area with new construction and will be able to exhibit more of the items it has on hand. Great historical reference to the oil field and ranching that makes up Osage County.
