The Oklahoma Hall of Fame and Gaylord-Pickens Museum (OHOF) is a family-friendly facility. However, we do ask that children 12 and under have an adult with them at all times; field trips should have an appropriate number of chaperones. Feel free to bring strollers or other child carriers with you when visiting. If you or a family member need extra assistance, you can check out a wheelchair at the front desk. Additionally, sensory kits and a quiet space are available upon request.


Feel free to take any photos or videos while visiting the Museum. If you share them on social media, be sure to tag us at @OklahomaHOF. By attending OHOF programs, you agree to allow the Oklahoma Hall of Fame and its authorized representatives permission to take photos and video of program participation. Photos and videos taken may be used, in any form, in future publications, brochures, social media, or other marketing items to promote the Oklahoma Hall of Fame and Gaylord-Pickens Museum. Such use shall be without payment of fees, royalties, special credit or other compensation.

Smoking & Weapons

Smoking, including e-cigarettes, is not allowed inside the Museum. Additionally, weapons of any kind, including those permitted via concealed carry, are not allowed inside the Museum or anywhere on OHOF grounds per Oklahoma Statute §21-1290.22.

Food & Drinks

Food and drinks are not allowed inside the Museum, unless contracted through one of our approved caterers or coordinated as part of a pre-scheduled field trip. Guests are welcome to enjoy food and drinks inside our courtyard or at the nearby park across the street.

Exhibits & Artwork

Most of our exhibits provide hands-on learning opportunities, and we encourage you to play, interact, learn and explore. However, please do not touch the artwork on display in the Tulsa World | Lorton Family Gallery, on the 3rd floor, or portraits throughout the Museum.

Donor Privacy

The Oklahoma Hall of Fame values and respects the privacy of its donors, partners and other stakeholders. The Oklahoma Hall of Fame will never sell, rent, or exchange mailing lists. All confidential information which a donor would reasonably expect to be private will be safeguarded and not be made public. Requests by donors to remain anonymous will be honored.
