The Tulsa Historical Society collection contains materials that date to the 19th century and to the present. The Society’s mission is to collect, preserve and present the material to the public.
The museum’s collection is wide ranging and includes over 15,000 photographs, approximately one thousand books that relate to Tulsa or Oklahoma, historical films and videos, manuscripts, periodicals, maps, vertical files covering approximately six thousand subjects, clothes, architectural elements, fine and decorative arts, furniture, military uniforms, military medals and a myriad of other objects that pertain to Tulsa or Oklahoma history.
While much of the material on display in exhibits at the Tulsa Historical Society is from our collection, members may make an appointment to look at other specific areas of Tulsa history for research. Visit the Research Requests page for information on how to make an appointment and what material is available.
