We saw the reviews, had some time on a trip to Oklahoma, so we went. The building alone is worth the visit and the albums, clothing, posters, art work and instruments were a plus. Where else can you see a horn blown by Dizzy Gillespy...More

This is another example of what you can do with an older building. Once a Masonic Lodge for many years, this place has been converted to a Jazz Museum, which I must admit was a first for me. Not knowing exactly what to expect, we...More
