From 98 Apartments in Owasso to Museums in OKC

Owasso Museums in OKC












Don’t you just love living in apartments in Owasso? We do, and we love being able to enjoy a small town lifestyle just far enough away from big city attractions. It’s perfect how Owasso is just far enough north to escape the sweltering summers, but also just far enough south to avoid the freezing cold winters. We also get to live near the beautiful Skiatook Lake, where boaters, hikers swimmers and other outdoor enthusiasts can get their nature fix. Plus, Owasso residents can always count on a low cost of living and an eclectic mix of southern and western culture. It’s a totally unique town.


Yes, Owasso apartments are the perfect place to call home. However, Oklahoma is a great big state with a whole lot more to offer beyond our city limits. We would be remiss if we did not recommend that our residents get out and explore some of the cultural attractions to be found in Oklahoma’s bigger cities.


Just two hours away by car, the museums in Oklahoma City are a great place to start your cultural exploration. You can also explore the state capitol, go to multiple water parks and catch a Thunder game while you’re there. If museums are your thing, there are a wide variety of events coming up that we thought our residents might be interested in. Check out the list below and let us know on Facebook if you decide to check any of them out!


Hollywood and the American West


The National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum is just about the most Oklahoman place you can possibly visit. Now through May 14th you can go see their collection of more than 75 photographs from famed Hollywood photographer John R. Hamilton. There’s only one place in Oklahoma where you can go to experience the glory days of John Wayne, Paul Newman and Natalie Wood. The Hollywood and the American West collection also includes memorabilia from John Wayne’s personal property.


The museum is open from 10:00 a.m. to 5 p.m. and costs $12.50 per ticket for adults.


The Unsettled Lens: Photography from the OKCMOA Permanent Collection


If you haven’t been to the Oklahoma City Museum of Art, now is the perfect time to get down there for the first time. The museum curators are limited in their ability to show many items from the permanent collection because of how large it is, but plenty of permanent collection photographs will be on display during this exhibition. The Unsettled Lens exhibition is on display until May 14th, and focuses primarily on abstract photographs of nature. According to the museum website, these photographs, “may elicit unsettling sensations and challenge our intellectual mastery of the new.” Sounds intriguing, right?


If you’re interested, the OKCMOA is open 6 days a week (excluding Monday) and tickets for adults are $12.


Screenings of the 2017 Academy Award Nominated Films


We have another event at the OKCMOA, but this time it's in the theatre instead of the gallery. The OKCMOA is the only venue in town that will be showing all of the 2017 Oscar nominees. When they say they’re showing the Academy Award nominated films, they don’t just mean the ones nominated for Best Picture either. No, the OKCMOA will be showing films from 4 categories including Live Action Short Films Animated Short Films, Documentary Short Films and Feature Films.


Movie buffs will not want to miss this awesome event. If you’re interested, tickets are $5 for OKCMOA members and $9 for non-members. The event only runs through March 18th, so grab your tickets as soon as possible!
