HAR-BER VILLAGE MUSEUM is a seasonal (third Saturday in March thru first Saturday in November) pioneer-era village and history museum located on the shores of Grand Lake o' the Cherokees in Oklahoma. Visitors experience the area's history and ecology through self-guided tours. Antiques, collectibles and reproductions are displayed in exhibitions representing the mid-1800s to the early 1900s in the local four-state region (Oklahoma, Arkansas, Missouri and Kansas). Several of the Village's HISTORIC BUILDINGS were relocated to the grounds, including a schoolhouse, jail and 16 log cabins. Other log structures were built to house collections and are typical for the mid-to-late 1800s-a courthouse, a bank, a stagecoach inn and a church built with bricks hand-made before the Civil War. Other replicated buildings include a mercantile, jail and hanging gallows, a doctor's and a dentist's office, print shop, post office, drug store and more. Haven't been to Har-Ber Village in a while? EXHIBITS have been recently renovated and/or relocated, HANDS-ON ACTIVITY STATIONS added (Kid's Cabin, Nursery, School, Jail, Saloon), and frequent WORKSHOPS, events and historic craft and trade demonstrations have become a part of Har-Ber Village's offerings (blacksmith DEMONSTRATIONS, spinning and weaving demonstrations and historic craft WORKSHOPS.

Look back at history

This is a great interactive museum - for adults of kids. But there is a lot of walking and most of the trek is outside, so weather will be a factor.

Har-ber Village has one of the coolest founding stories around. You will find out how this neat outdoor antique museum came about and why the founders chose Grove to plant this seed of enjoyment for so many. If you are within 200 miles of Grove, you should make a plan to come see this place!

Har-Ber Village is a great place to go see if you are coming up to the Grove, Oklahoma area. They have such a variety of things to see (old clothing, doll collection, Old Dental Office-there is just too much to put in one review).

Very casual little cabin getaway. Winter prices are cheaper than hotels. If you don't have gps, be sure to listen to directions. IT IS WORTH THE LITTLE BIT IF DRIVE. Very serene and staff is super nice.

Wonderful!!! Well worth the small entrance fee. This takes as long or as short as you wish. You walk around the many many displays and buildings. We loved this village and highly recommend the trip into Grove to see it.

Interesting place. Each little building has items for different professions in the 1800's such as barber, hat maker, doctor. Quaint little school house. Also has a very large collection of various glasswares. Walking paths from building to building. Small diner if you get hungry. Well worth a visit. Also has special classes for different crafts on some Saturdays.

Definitely for all ages. Lots of unusual history, very clean, well laid out and a 100 buildings! A step back in time as another visitor reviewed. If you live anywhere near here, its worth the trip!

Step back in time! See what life was like many years ago! You can view everything from a dentist's office from around 1917, a doctor's office from many years ago, clothing from years ago including wedding dresses and hats, as well as a lovely chapel right along the lake. Beautiful grounds! Go at your own pace. Great for families! There... More

I have lived in Oklahoma most of my life and had never heard of this place.My husband and I were discussing someplace close to visit on a day trip. He mentioned he'd been here as a kid and we looked it up online and found out the village had just reopened for the season. It is a self guided tour... More
