A century ago, most travelers had no choice but to explore the world by foot, unless, of course, they were rich enough to own a Wonkavator. With that in mind, they probably would appreciate visiting the Panhandle-Plains Historical Museum?a facility that, in a sense, lets guests cover 26,000 square miles on foot in one visit. But that?s not the only big number behind the museum?s operation: it also houses more than 2 million artifacts, spanning 14,000 years of the region?s history. Inside, guests can marvel at themed displays, including those that showcase the Plains? roots in paleontology, archeology, and petroleum. They can also relive the hardships and courage of living in the Old West while plodding through a life-size Pioneer Town.

In addition to their own physiques, shoppers can outfit living rooms, bedrooms, and panic rooms with pieces from a rotating array of housewares, such as picture frames, wall hangings, and pillows.
