Tour Details

Water/Ways, an exhibition from the Smithsonian's Museum on Main Street, explores the relationship between people and water. It explores the centrality of water in our lives including its effect on the environment and climate, its practical role in agriculture and economic planning, and its impact on culture and spirituality.

On February 18th, the Smithsonian’s traveling exhibit, Water/Ways will open at the Museum of the Western Prairie in Altus!

The exhibit illuminates the many ways we use and relate to water, many of which we take for granted.  The exhibit acts as a catalyst for discussion about how Oklahoma communities are impacted by both the abundance and the lack of water in our state.

Water/Ways will close on April 11th.  Don’t miss this opportunity to see the exhibit in southwestern Oklahoma and learn about Altus’ rich water history!
