    In addition to the J.M. Davis museum, we have another even closer to you. The 45th Infantry Museum is located just east of the intersection of NE 36th and Martin Luther King Blvd in OKC. Excellent displays of military hardware (tanks, trucks, aircraft of all kinds), firearms (dating back to Revolutionary War times), and much more. Plus, it is free, but they do try to encourage donations.

    With regards to the J.M. Davis Museum, does anyone know if they allow photography within the museum? 45th Infantry allows photography so long as one does NOT use flash.

    They have collections of other things besides the guns. Beer stein mugs, posters etc. Nooses that hung criminals. Interesting place and
    also while in Claremore visit the Will Rogers Memorial for lots of his things.

    Great idea! I haven’t been back since I moved to Claremore.

    We have some good eats too now. Both Main Street Tavern and J Farley’s offer a broad range of food.
