Woody Guthrie Center – Downtown Tulsa Activity for Families or Couples

The Woody Guthrie Center in Downtown Tulsa would be a lovely winter’s day activity for families or for couples. It is dedicated to the life and legacy of American folk musician and singer-songwriter Woody Guthrie. This interactive museum is appropriate for mid elementary children and up. The center includes:

  • The Dust Bowl Section featuring the viewing of a film on the dust bowl as you listen to some of Woody’s Dust Bowl Ballads. (This was one of my favorite areas. Watching what the dust bowl was like was pretty fascinating.)
  • Music Bar for listening to Woody’s music.
  • Lyric writing station where you can have a hand at creating a lyric.
  • Woody’s America interactive map to learn about Woody’s history.
  • Woody’s Footsteps Exhibit.
  • Woody’s Lyric Journal.
  • Woody’s violin, guitar and mandolin.
  • Original, hand written lyrics of “This Land is Your Land”.
