ABOUT THE PICKENS MUSEUM
Spark Your Imagination
Welcome to one of the preeminent museums in Ponca City. The collections and events at Doctor Pickens Museum of Turquoise Jewelry are second to none. You are cordially invited to our Museum, where you will get the chance to expand your knowledge through our exclusive collection and optional tours. You will be exposed to new ideas and different exhibitions that will develop your mind.
For Over 50 Years Dr. S. J. Pickens and Hugh Pickens collected paintings and sculptures by American, Native American, Oklahoman, African American, and African Artists. Their legacy is to create a Museum of Art on the Great Plains of Oklahoma to highlight the work of these artists.
Our ever-growing institution is dedicated to expanding our visitors’ knowledge. Ultimately, we are in the business of education, and we believe in providing learning experiences for children and educational opportunities for adults. With our temporary exhibitions and events, as well as our permanent collections, we are sure that everyone will leave our Museum with new knowledge.
