Visit Tulsa: The Outsiders House Museum

If you've ever watched the 80s classic The Outsiders, the coming-of-age story of a group of adolescents and the socio-economic challenges they faced, then you'll want to visit The Outsiders House Museum in Tulsa, where the movie was actually filmed.

This film, which catapulted the careers of then-unknown actors (such as Rob Lowe, Emilio Estevez, C. Thomas Howell, Ralph Macchio, Matt Dillon, Patrick Swayze, and Tom Cruise) is beloved my many, and a visit to The Outsiders House Museum is a fantastic tribute to the film.

Having been saved from demolition, the property was not in the best of shape, but the current owners rebuilt and restored what they could, going great lengths to not only preserve what they could of the original home, but also secure the original props from the movie.  

We ended up booking a private tour, where we got to hear some really great tidbits about the history of the movie and the filming, as well as interesting information about the actors and the props.   Many of the actors have been and continue to visit the museum!

Hundreds of original props as well as memorabilia can be found all throughout the home.  

Throughout The Outsiders House are images of the movie that correspond to the different rooms in the home.  
The owners are very welcoming, allowing people to touch props and take photos so you can recreate popular scenes from the movie.

The owners are well-versed in everything The Outsiders, having watched the movie many times over, capturing individual clips to hunt down as much as they can from the original film, whether it be clothing or appliances.  

They have done a fantastic job, and a visit to The Outsiders House Museum was truly a step back in time, making me want to watch the movie all over again.
