This expansive museum opened in 2005 and is maintained by the Oklahoma Historical Society. A Smithsonian Affiliate and architectural beauty, the Oklahoma History Center is an incredible venue.
The History Center itself is 215,000 square-feet and contains five galleries. Additionally, there are five different meeting spaces ideal for a multitude of events.
Planners can choose from the beautiful Devon Great Hall or the timeless Chesapeake Event Center and Gallery during the daytime, or the Cooper and Gladys West Atrium Wing and Gallery, the Atrium Bridge, the stunning Rhonda and David Walters Plaza, the East Terrace and the Dr. LeRoy H. Fischer Boardroom in the evenings.
The Devon Great Hall is a gorgeous, 80-foot floor-to-ceiling space complete with hardwood floors and a stunning view of the Oklahoma State Capitol through the room’s glass atrium. Those in attendance will also be greeted by the amazing replica airplane suspended overhead.
Another very elegant feature of the museum’s meeting space is the Chesapeake Event Center and Gallery. This room features wood walls with granite accents and incredible artwork from the state capitol collection.
Not only is this room striking, but it also provides a great amount of functionality. A built-in stage with complete audio and visual capabilities as well as varied lighting make the event center the perfect place for any presentation.
The Chesapeake Event Center and Gallery allows for theatre, banquet and lecture-style seating.
At night, the Cooper and Gladys West Atrium Wing and Gallery is the perfect space for a reception-style event. The Atrium Bridge provides a quaint, sophisticated atmosphere and has an old wagon displayed in the front of the room to add a splash of personality.
When the weather is warm, both the Rhonda and David Walters Plaza and the East Terrace are gorgeous outdoor locations. The plaza features a scenic fountain that adds beauty to any event and the terrace has a stone exterior.
Finally, the Dr. LeRoy H. Fischer Boardroom is perfect for smaller meetings, complete with an oval table equipped with audio and visual capabilities, a podium, a large screen and varied lighting.
Parking is also easy and free for your attendees, plus there’s a circle drive by the front entrance making it easy for shuttles or motorcoaches to drop off groups.
