About Us

The Wildlife Heritage Center Museum is a 3100 SF log cabin facility located between two existing Whitetail and Fallow deer exhibits in Antlers, OK. The facility is utilized as a regional tourism attraction while at the same time serving as a wildlife and nature resources conservation, public education learning center. Hours are Monday through Friday 9AM – 4PM. Saturday 10AM to 2PM (closed holidays). Admission is free!

The Wildlife Heritage Center Museum is a project that developed from the Deer Capital Tourism Association, a 501 (C) (3) organization, in the spring of 2001. An in-depth marketing plan was conducted by Devlin and Associates in 1998 entitled “The Making the th Deer Capital of the World”. The local tourism association, utilizing the marketing plan, adopted the project and started the task of planning, design and fund raising for the museum.

The facility is located on the City of Antlers property adjacent to “Little Peoples Park” in Antlers, Oklahoma. Two 7000 SF deer exhibits enclosures were constructed in October 2002.

The building dedication was held October 6, 2006.
