Nothing seemed particularly out of place when a young man and woman moved into an unassuming house near the Ozark Mountains. They got married?right in the house's living room, in fact?and then started down paths that would ultimately change the course of American history. Seventeen years later, that man, Bill Clinton, would become the the 42nd president of the United States, and high school history teachers nationwide would be forced to update their classroom materials. President Bill Clinton and Senator Hillary Clinton started their adult lives and political careers in that now-storied one-bedroom house. Today, its 1,800 square feet serve as the Clinton House Museum, now on the National Register of Historic Places. Its rooms showcase both Bill's and Hillary's remarkable political careers, telling their remarkable stories through timelines, videos, and campaign signs.

What began in 1965 as a traveling exhibit from the Jewish Museum in New York transformed into a permanent space for art pieces that encompass various aspects of Jewish life. The museum now bears the name of its first curator, Tulsa native Sherwin Miller, whose dedication to Judaism and art embodies the museum’s mission to "preserve and share the legacy of Jewish art, history and culture." To cultivate its educational environment, The Sherwin Miller Museum of Jewish Art maintains permanent collections such as the Jewish History and Culture exhibition, in which visitors can peruse fine art in the form of brilliantly colored tapestries by Israeli artist Reuven Rubin and archeological artifacts from the Middle Bronze Age through the Iron Age. Other displays include the Kaiser Holocaust Exhibition on the first floor and the Oklahoma Jewish Experience, which tells the stories of immigrants and showcases memorabilia from Oklahoma synagogues and families. In addition to its collections, the museum also showcases rotating exhibits of visiting works of art and seasonal educational displays with craft projects geared toward specific holidays.

The Tulsa Air and Space Museum explores the history of aerial propulsion, from propeller planes to rockets. The standing exhibits offer visitors a chance to get up close to real equipment or try their hand at piloting within simulators. An actual MD-80 aircraft standing outside of the museum—it's soon to be the centerpiece of an interactive exhibit on aeronautics, but for now it's content to inspire anyone who looks upon it. For those interested in more than gazing, hourly tours are offered which include a cockpit visit and short video. Equally incredible (though perhaps not quite as large) are exhibits that focus on the World War II, the Space Age, and celebrate the history of aeronautics. The museum also features a planetarium with hourly shows that give an idea of just how large the universe truly is.

Thomas Gilcrease learned to love the American West as a boy growing up in the Oklahoma Territory during the early 1900s, but it took a trip to Europe to ignite his passion for preserving and sharing the region's distinctive culture and history. Inspired by the vast displays of Old World artwork he viewed during his overseas travels, he used the wealth he amassed in Oklahoma's oil fields to assemble an immense collection of art and artifacts. This collection found its current home in 1949 when Gilcrease founded what would become the Gilcrease Museum. The museum's exhibit halls, library shelves, and refrigerator doors brim with historically and culturally significant pieces, including more than 10,000 Western American artworks by nationally renowned painters and sculptors, 100,000 rare books, maps, and manuscripts, and 250,000 Native American artifacts. Although exhibits change throughout the year, they tend to explore the impact of westward expansion while also celebrating the region's natural beauty and honoring its roots in Native American culture. Beyond its walls, the Gilcrease Museum features 23 acres of themed gardens, which embrace landscaping design and agricultural practices from the pre-Columbian, Colonial, and Victorian eras, among others. These gardens allow visitors to interact with displays that are simultaneously historical and alive, serving as a symbolic reminder of western America's cultural growth and development.
