The Oklahoma History Center offers a unique setting for your special events, from the most elegant celebration to informal gatherings.

The Devon Great Hall is a striking setting for evening events. Hardwood floors with polished granite accents create an atmosphere of sophistication. A soaring 80-ft floor to ceiling glass atrium offers a dramatic view of the Oklahoma State Capitol. Guests will marvel at the replica of Wiley Post’s famous Winnie Mae airplane suspended overhead

The Chesapeake Events Center is an extraordinary meeting space for distinctive occasions. Rich wood walls and granite highlights are accented by elements of original artwork from the State Capitol. Complete with a built-in stage, rear-projection screen, wireless audio, remote controlled video, and variable lighting, this venue is fully equipped for gatherings. Groups can be comfortably seated in banquet, theater or lecture-style seating in this beautiful meeting room.

Additional evening event settings include the West Family Hall, the Atrium Bridge, the picturesque Walter’s Plaza featuring the Colonial Dames Fountain, and the East Terrace featuring H. Holden’s majestic sculpture “Monarch at Rest.”
The facility fee is very reasonable and includes setup, staffing, security, maintenance, and audio/visual equipment use. Preferred catering is available on site while outside catering is allowed with prior approval and additional fee.

The Oklahoma History Center was probably one of the best decisions we made in our whole wedding planning process. The venue is beautiful and unique. All the open windows are wonderful and the view is beautiful at night when the reception is all lit up. The staff is very helpful and friendly. All my guests appreciated having the ceremony and reception in the same building so no one had to go anywhere. I highly recommend for something different and unique.

The Oklahoma History Center is an amazing place to get married. All of our guest were out-of-town guests and were really impressed with how beautiful the OHC was. Cyndi Lu, Gus, and Nicole in the events office were all really helpful. I wouldn't change a thing about the venue.

My wedding at the Oklahoma History Center was absolutely beautiful. The views of the Capitol were gorgeous. Cyndi Lu, Gus and Nicole were always quick to respond to my phone calls, emails and visits. They did a wonderful job and I would highly recommend them to anyone.

This was the most beautiful venue ever. The plane and the windows to the capital just make everything so breathtaking. There are several things that the venue doesn't allow you to do, or have at the wedding, but those are clearly stated in the contract. They're a little more strict than most places, but they have to be. It's not a wedding venue like the Farmer's Market, or Coles Garden, they're a museum first. As long as you understand that, and follow Cyndi Lu's rules, you'll have the wedding of your dreams.

Oklahoma History was the perfect place for our wedding! We had our ceremony on the patio by the fountain and our reception in the main hall with the airplane. The price was good, we were able to bring in our own catering and alcohol (though stay far away from Ned's!)

Cyndi Lu and Nikki were always very fast to respond to questions and were great to work with. Our wedding had 150 people and it felt cozy and large at the same time. Our pictures turned out great with the capital in the back and all our guests raved about how beautiful the venue was. A++

The only down side was that we couldn't set up before 4pm the day of the wedding. We hired a day of coordinator to set up at 4 which worked out great and I didn't have to spend the day before my wedding decorating. Win, win!

The venue was beautiful, but the event coordinators were NOT flexible at all. The venue is gorgeous, but VERY strict!

We were very happy with the Oklahoma History Center. We has our reception in the devon great hall which made for the most amazing pictures. It was really nice to be able to give our guests the option to tour the galleries while we were taking our photos. Cyndi Lu was amazing and very helpful. She has lots of good ideas and is very flexible.
