The Heartland of America Museum opened on June 12, 2007. Here, visitors can see - up close and personal - many artifacts from the late 1800s through the 1950s as they walk through the 32 major historical exhibits and nearly 40 aisle cabinet exhibits.
This 1931 Ford Model "A" 3-speed sports coupe is one of the first items
visitors see upon entering the museum lobby.
The 12,000 square foot building is located on the southeast edge of Weatherford, Oklahoma and is readily visible from Interstate 40 between exits 82 and 84.
In addition to the main exhibit building, the Heartland Museum features four historic theme buildings on the museum grounds. These include:
- An authentic Weatherford Route 66 Diner (Elvis Presley stopped here three times)
- A one-room schoolhouse
- 1930s era Blacksmith shop
- Early day portable jail
