Grand Opening Event
On June 13th and 14th our museum hosted a grand-opening event to celebrate the beginning of summer and show the local community how much we have grown. The positive support we received greatly exceeded our expectations, as we welcomed visitors from the local Oklahoma community and all over the country.
On Friday, a group of pigeons brought to us by Randy Goodpasture were released in front of the museum to mark the occasion. It was a thrill to have with us Senator Constance Johnson as well as a representative from the office of Senator Tom Coburn. Senator Johnson presented our curator and the museum with a special citation of congratulations. We were also happy to have a few local food trucks come out and feed our hungry patrons. For a demonstration, a group of fancy pigeons were set out for display and visitors were given interesting facts about various breeds, how a pigeon is caredfor and their habits.
Thank you so much to everyone who took the time to come have fun with us! Continued support and interest from the public is vital not only to our museum, but to the preservation of this amazing bird's history. We hope to continue with this great momentum in the coming months and invite you to come and visit.
