Skiatook Museum At Skiatook Museum, anyone interested in their family tree or Skiatook's past, can view personal papers, documents, and photographs of the pioneer families, events and places, which are recorded here.

In 1988, after five moves, the Skiatook Museum moved into the home of pioneer doctor, W.G. Phillips. The home was built in 1912 and contained his office. Dr. Phillips came to Skiatook in 1910 and served the community for over 50 years. His medical diploma and college graduation picture are on display at the museum, as well as some of his cabinets with instruments. Also, furniture and other household items of the town's pioneers are on display. The museum has related displays and Civil War
artifacts from the Bird Creek Basin and Quapaw Creek.

Another feature at the museum is the microfilm reader. Visitors may use the reader to research into newspapers dating back to April of 1905, the date the first newspaper in town started printing.
