For the bluegrass music fan the name Gibson is synonymous with quality banjos. A special gallery in the museum spotlights a large collection of Gibson Mastertone banjos manufactured during the company’s golden years of the 1920s and 30s, including an extremely rare, pre-war Gibson five-string banjo valued at more than $175,000.00.
In Jan. 2016, the museum launched its largest exhibit, “The Banjo World of Steve Martin,” and brought on new staff to better serve our members and patrons. We’re also working on new concerts, events, educational opportunities and on building stronger partnerships with the Oklahoma City Community.
The museum needs funds to grow our acquisitions and to bring in new, national acts to Oklahoma City. We’re also raising money and seeking grants to fund a traveling exhibit.
