Rural Oklahoma Museum of Poetry

I'm not a big poetry or museum person, but I really enjoyed this museum. And don't forget to do the pasture poetry. It really was a treat. This was my treasure for the day!

Rural Oklahoma Museum of Poetry

The Rural Oklahoma Museum of Poetry is a little interactive museum in a converted machine shop/shed in northeastern Oklahoma. In the museum you can play poker poetry, write in the secret corner, make poetry-wear, go on a poem cache treasure hunt, and more. This place is not just about poetry; it's about rural life, having fun with words, being surprised, and petting lazy hound dogs that live on the property.
