The Chickasaw Cultural Center is located in Sulphur, Oklahoma near the Chickasaw National Recreation Area. Its 109-acre campus is home to historical museums with interactive exhibits on Chickasaw tribal history, traditional dancing, and Chickasaw language. Visitors can explore a traditional tribal village and a garden honoring members of the Chickasaw Nation Hall of Fame.

The Holisso Research Center holds a collection of tribal archives and genealogical records. The 350-seat Anoli’ Theater has a 40-by-60-foot screen with three projectors and features daily showings of Native American themed films. The campus also has an outdoor amphitheatre, sky terrace, plants native to Oklahoma and Mississippi, and a statue by sculptor and former Oklahoma state senator Enoch Kelly Haney. Construction began in 2004, took six years to complete, cost $40 million, and opened in 2010.
