Dates and Hours of Operation

Our Slice of History

The O'Keefe Ranch welcomes you our extensive exhibition be it rain, snow, or shine! No matter the season, there's always a reason to learn something new and have fun too!

Access inside the buildings is not possible outside of the regular season, however information about each building can be found at the building itself and online. If you're not able to make it out, be sure to check out the virtual tours for a peek inside many of the buildings.

As a living museum, our menagerie of animals make their home here year-round, and are always happy to have some company!

Want to bring your own companion along for the adventure? Lucky for you both, our grounds are pet-friendly! For the safety of our animals and staff, we ask that you ensure they are cleaned up after and lassoed at all times. Our critters live here and enjoy the freedom to roam, so be aware that your pet may be approached by one of our animals - chicken, goat, dog or otherwise!

If you would like to walk the grounds outside of our operating times, please do so. We have several donation boxes located on-site, and duly appreciate your patronage.
