Tom Mix Museum
The Tom Mix Museum in Dewey, chronicles the life of Tom Mix the first "King of the Cowboys," the original good guy in the white hat. Galloping across the silent screen on his horse, Tony, he rescued damsels, lassoed villains and performed death-defying feats of bravery.
Mix lived in Dewey as a young man and served as deputy sheriff in the area. The Tom Mix Museum contains a display of Mix's costumes, memorabilia, photographs and some of his personal property.
A life-sized replica of Tony greets visitors entering the Tom Mix Museum. Silent movies, starring Mix, can be viewed at the theater in the museum. The museum is operated by the Oklahoma Historical Society. This museum offers fun for the entire family.
