"The films were revealing and the stories uplifting, we loved seeing the people who have forged the artwork and jewelry. The artistry is amazing."

The centerpiece of the Indian Museum is the museum that houses work from American Indian artists from around the country. From the more than 3,000 piece collection, multiple exhibits are on display inside the museum. Exhibits are changed quarterly and yearly which allows us to explore many areas of American Indian life. Focusing on educating and preserving American Indian culture and heritage is the mission of our museum.

With 39 pieces displayed, the Indian Museum is home to the largest public collection of work by artist Blackbear Bosin. Bosin was born in Oklahoma in 1921, but his influence is still felt in the Air Capital city. Bosin designed the iconic Keeper of the Plains statue and was one of the founders of the Indian Center when it opened in 1969.

The museum mixes interactive displays, videos about the exhibits and exquisite pieces of art to fully express the life and culture of American Indians.​
