Edmond Historical Society and Museum

Step through the front door of the Edmond Historical Society & Museum and you immediately enter the community's history. The museum is housed in the former Armory of the 179th Infantry, 45th Division of the Oklahoma National Guard. The historic, native sandstone building was built in 1936 by the Works Progress Administration (WPA). The Museum has been in operation since 1983 and it has been recognized on the National Register of Historic Places since 1991. The Museum's Main Gallery features permanent collection exhibits depicting the lives of early pioneers, and the history that changed Edmond from a one-horse town to a bustling metropolis. The Children's Learning Center, located off the Main Gallery, is a unique hands-on learning area inspired by early Edmond. Children’s imaginations come alive in the miniature 1889 town. Children can sell flour in the general store, wear a badge in the sheriff’s office, live inside a teepee, find out what’s in the cupboards in a prairie house, be the conductor at the train station, count the money in the bank vault, plant a vegetable garden, and “touch & learn” about Oklahoma animals. The Museum also features many seasonal, temporary and traveling exhibits. Detailed information about all programs and exhibits can be found at the Museum’s website at www.edmondhistory.org. The Edmond Historical Society & Museum is open to the public Tuesday- Friday from 10am-5pm, and Saturdays 1pm- 4pm. Admission is always free.
