Specialty Museum · Museum
Over three decades in the making, the Comanche National Museum and Cultural Center (CNMCC) offers fascinating insight into the largest American Indian tribe in the Lawton-Fort Sill area. CNMCC is more than just a traditional museum. It is an experience that brings to life the "Nʉmʉnʉʉ," both past and present.

In 2001, the Comanche Nation received a National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) Grant for the planning of a tribal museum. Discussion for a museum had begun 20 years prior; however, nothing materialized at that time. With NEA funding, the Nation held a series of meetings with several tribal museums with the aim of developing a cultural center/museum for the Comanche people. Five years later, in September 2007, CNMCC officially opened its doors. CNMCC is funded by the tribe’s Gaming Contribution Fund, which does not include federal funding.
