What’s New?

Commission by Jake Tiger and the Holiday Bazaar

We are thankful for what we were able to do in 2023 thanks to the Historic Preservation Grant from the Oklahoma Historical Society and Oklahoma Humanities Grant. With their support, the Seminole Nation Museum commissioned a traditional men’s Seminole regalia and hired a Collections Assistant. We also ended the year with a successful Holiday Bazaar.

Welcome to the Museum

The Seminole Nation Museum documents and interprets the history and culture of the Seminole Nation of Oklahoma and the people and events that make its capital, Wewoka, one of the most historically significant and culturally diverse communities in Oklahoma. Through the use of select artifacts, historic photographs, and interpretive exhibits, the events and stories that shaped the home of the Seminoles for more than a century are chronicled in a captivating, educational, and enlightening experience.
