I love museums and stop at every town's museum no matter how large or small. This is the best one I've been to. The building is huge and all of the exhibits have plenty of space and aren't cluttered. It is a storehouse of information on the history of Broken Arrow. I was impressed by the police department exhibit. It... More

Pretty much a history of the town dating back to its beginning, evidence that this town is proud of its heritage. On second floor, does have an elevator. First floor had a display of Christmas trees decorated by local businesses and families, that we enjoyed and that were to be given away before the holiday, a nice gesture.

We checked the space out to have a small wedding. There is an event space on the 3rd floor with access to a large L shape terrace. The price is hands down great for use of the space, lower if you are a resident in the town. The staff are so nice and quick to respond and be as helpful... More

The best kept secret meeting place in BA is the 3rd floor of the museum. They have tables and chairs, a catering kitchen, bathrooms and a spectacular balcony that over looks the farmers market! It is affordable and usually available! Ssshh...that's the best part. Well, I take that back Lori Lewis the director is the best part! Fun, friendly and... More

There is so much history of this town packed in that small building you really have to work hard to see everything in one visit. The displays are beautifully arranged like a small town of real people.Worth going back for another visit with out of town company.

Have lived in the Tulsa area and in Broken Arrow for many years. The Museum is small but a delightful memory of Broken Arrow's history. Worth the time for a family outing.

My husband and I expend a rainy day morning in this museum and we were fascinated with their displays, history of Broken Arrow and records and old interesting pictures and artefacts. My husband a 26 years army retired really enjoyed and loved the military displays of world war 1 and 2 and the history of the town heroes. It was... More
