The Donald C. & Elizabeth M. Dickinson Research Center serves as the library and archives of the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum. Its mission is to preserve and document the heritage of the American West for the enrichment of the public.

The Dickinson Research Center is actively pursuing collections of personal papers and business and organizational records that reflect and document aspects of Western history, culture, and art. The Center primarily seeks materials in the following five topical areas: Entertainment (Western popular culture), Western Art, Ranching, Native American, and Rodeo. Please contact the Director, Kimberly Roblin, if you have materials you are interested in donating.

Many photographs can be found in the Image Archive Database.  Information about archival collections can be found in the Finding Aids.

The Research Center is open by appointment only.  If you have questions or wish to make an appointment, please contact us at (405) 478-2250, ext. 290, or AskArchives@nationalcowboymuseum.org.
