At the Cherokee National Prison Museum, you will learn the history of Cherokee law and order. Situated in the middle of historic Tahlequah, the prison was built in 1875 to hold the most hardened criminals in Indian Territory.

Today, it is home to a two-building interpretive site exploring the history of Cherokee crime and punishment, law enforcement, life at the National Prison and an overview of famous outlaws and their activity in the area.

Walk the grounds of the museum and see a reproduction gallows that stands as a reminder of the ultimate punishment.
