Oklahoma Museums Week

May 17th, 2015 All Day - May 23rd, 2015

You have probably visited a museum at some time in your life. Maybe you saw ancient artifacts and dreamed of becoming Indiana Jones. Maybe you saw a demonstration using a butter churn and realized how glad you are to be living in a more modern age. Maybe you took your family to a museum and they made a piece of art to take home. That museum visit has stuck with you. It was an educational, inspiring and fun experience.

We believe museums are places that educate, inform and entertain. You can help us spread the word about the importance and value of museums to the Oklahoma legislature and congressional delegation!

We are the voice of Oklahoma museums and we will be visiting Oklahoma’s congressional delegation in person in Washington DC to let them know museums matter! As part of Oklahoma Museums Week May 17-23, we will uplift our Oklahoma museums and reach out to the state legislature with this year's advocacy piece.

This is about recognizing the importance of museums to us as individuals, our communities and society. It’s about understanding the value of museums to educate, be economic engines and provide public service.

We will ask Governor Mary Fallin to proclaim May 17-23 as Oklahoma Museums Week.

Please join us as we celebrate Oklahoma museums.
