The Seminole Nation Museum exists for the documentation and interpretation of the history and culture of the Seminole Nation of Oklahoma as well as the people, cultural and historical events that establish the diversity of the community of Wewoka, its capital.

The Museum was established by the citizens of Wewoka in 1974 as the result of a plan that has been proposed during the 1966 Wewoka Centennial Celebration.*One decade after this proposal, the Museum was then fulfilled as it occupies a magnificent native stone building built in 1937 by the WPA.*

At first, it was supposed to be a local community center. Today, it also boasts of an art gallery, comprehensive research library, arts and crafts center/gift shop occupying nearly 6,000 square feet of exhibit space that emphasizes on the heritage of the people in this community.

The Museum enables the visitors to enrich their knowledge and acquire an educational and enlightening experience as it showcases a selection of artifacts, historic images and interpretive exhibits that illustrate how these events and stories shaped and contributed to the Seminole area for over a century.
