Mysteries at the Museum Seek and Find


Sherlock Homes, the great detective from England, E.W. Marland’s ancestral homeland, has traveled to Oklahoma to help Mr. Marland find some missing items.
Visitor sleuths will find one item per room and label each with its location much like the board game Clue, only no murder accompanies the items.

The Mysteries at the Museum Seek and Find is available for student groups or adult tours.

My Travel Journal - A French Fur Trader's Experience

During the 1700s the Wichita Indians inhabited the area along the Arkansas River east of what is now Newkirk, OK. French traders from New Orleans traveled up the Mississippi River and then onto the Arkansas River to approach the encampment. They brought with them metal work and beads to trade with the Wichita in return for hides and furs and probably some dried meat.

Assuming the role of a French fur trader, visitors will work though a journal as they tour the home time traveling up the rivers from New Orleans to trade with the Wichita tribe. The participants will find related items along the way and learn what the experience of a French fur trader may have been like through answering a series of questions.

My Travel Journal is available for student groups or adult tours.

Mary Virginia’s Trunk

 




Mary Virginia’s Trunk is an educational program that highlights and informs a group about interesting items used in the 1920s.

Contents include women’s and men’s personal items and some household kitchen items. The presentation is given in show-n-tell fashion as Mary Virginia Marland takes each item one by one out of her truck and asks the audience to “guess” what each item is and how it was used. A lively discussion then follows with factual information on the rest of the story.....

The presentation can be viewed by school groups, civic groups or other tour groups as available in house or on the road. To schedule “Mary Virginia’s Trunk” call the Marland Grand Home at 580-767-0427.
