The Oklahoma Hall of Fame preserves Oklahoma’s unique history while promoting pride in our great state. Through each of its programs and the Gaylord-Pickens Museum, the Oklahoma Hall of Fame honors our state’s rich tradition by telling Oklahoma’s story through its people.
Founded in 1927, the Oklahoma Hall of Fame was created to honor Oklahomans who had 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.
The Gaylord-Pickens Museum, home of the Oklahoma Hall of Fame, exhibits the portraits of Oklahoma Hall of Fame Members and interactive exhibits exploring the stories of Oklahomans. Further, special exhibits of work by Oklahoma artists are featured 3-4 times annually in the Tulsa-World | Lorton Family Gallery.
