Service animals are welcome in all areas of the Chisholm Trail Heritage Center. The 4D Experience Theater has intense scenes that may be frightening for animals.

Oklahoma summers can be brutally hot. Leaving your pet in your vehicle during summer months is strictly prohibited and can result in a severe fine from local law enforcement.

If you are traveling with a four legged companion, the Center has several options that will keep them safe and sound during your visit. Please take advantage of our property to “stretch the legs.”

The City of Duncan requires pets to be on a leash or directly in the owner’s control at all times.

Baby Care

Restrooms have diaper changing areas. Nursing mothers have access to a lockable office near the entrance if needed. Please let us know if you have additional needs or have forgotten something critical.

Most of the staff are mothers and have handy “mommy” or “grandmommy” bags full of necessities.

Camera UsageCameras

Visitors may take photos, record video, or record audiotapes for personal use except in the T.H. McCasland, Jr. Experience Theater.
