Finally, See You Saturday offers free admission to the Oklahoma Hall of Fame and Gaylord-Pickens Museum on the Second Saturday of every month in 2019.
“Free Family Fun programming at the Oklahoma Hall of Fame provides an interactive experience for students of all ages to explore, learn, and create. Students are able to walk-away with a greater understanding of our state’s best and brightest, and take home their own stories and art creations,” said Emma Fritz, Oklahoma Hall of Fame & Gaylord-Pickens Museum’s Manager of Museum Experience.
The Oklahoma Hall of Fame preserves Oklahoma’s history by telling Oklahoma’s story through its people. Founded in 1927, the Oklahoma Hall of Fame was created to honor Oklahomans who have given outstanding service to the state during their lifetime and to provide educational programming for students of all ages. Being inducted to the Oklahoma Hall of Fame is Oklahoma's Highest Honor. Through exhibits and experiences at the Gaylord-Pickens Museum, the Oklahoma Hall of Fame stands to preserve Oklahoma’s unique history while promoting pride in our great state.
