Indoor Fun in Shawnee Oklahoma

Updated: Jul 7

While Oklahoma averages 231 sunny days a year, some of those sunny days can be on really cold days. And it does snow in Oklahoma. On those really cold, snowy days (or blistering hot ones!!), you’re looking for fun things to do indoors.


Here’s all the fun things to do indoors in Shawnee!



See a mummy at the Mabee-Gerrer Museum of Art. Father Gregory Gerrer traveled Europe, Africa, and South America and amassed quite a collection of artifacts and art. See Egyptian, Greek and Roman objects and art including Tu Tu - Oklahoma’s only mummy!


At the Citizen Potawatomi Nation Cultural Heritage Center, you can stroll galleries that feature tribal history ranging from pre-contact history to present day. Bonus! Admission is free.


See a stuffed Alaskan bear, player piano, antique phones, railroad memorabilia, several model train sets and a scale model of downtown Shawnee in the Pottawatomie County Museum. Stroll (or slide) across the complex to see the historic Depot.
