Renovation

Demolition for the upcoming renovation has commenced. We are now working towards advancing the museum's aesthetics and exhibit spaces, and maximizing the use of our space. We're so excited that this project we've been working towards for so long has finally begun.

Even though we're renovating the Seminole Wing, there's still much to see at the Seminole Nation Museum.

The Wewoka Wing has now become so much more with the addition of several temporary cases full of Seminole artifacts and histories.

Stop by the museum and take a stroll through the history of the Seminole tribe and the town of Wewoka today.
