The Museum of the Red River was established in 1974 to contribute to the knowledge and appreciation of the cultural heritage of the Americas. Visitors head to this Idabel museum to view one of its most popular displays, a fossil cast of the official Oklahoma state dinosaur, the "Acrocanthosaurus atokensis." The first fossil was found near Atoka, and the most complete skeleton of this dinosaur was found less than twenty miles away from the museum. Rotating exhibits are drawn from the museum’s permanent collection of over 30,000 objects.
