Midwest City High School Museum officially opened at 10:00 am on Saturday, September 29, 2001, with a ribbon cutting ceremony at the old entrance of the high school. This culminated many months of effort by the staff and faculty of the high school, the school board and members of the alumni.
With a museum site guaranteed by the school board, members of the alumni visited high school museums in Chandler and Enid in February 1999 to obtain operation concepts. Later, the alumni spent considerable time at Classen and Central High Schools observing their procedures. Some great ideas were provided by these excellent museums.
In order to raise funds to set up and operate the museum, the Midwest City High School Museum, Inc. (MCHSM, Inc.) was organized on April 13, 1999. It is a legally formed charitable organization with full tax-exempt status for contributions. Original Board Members were: Rick Bachman, Robert H. Croak, David N. Fox, Jennie Lee Maynord, Paul W. Nicholson, J. E. Sutton and Damon D. Wingfield (Chairman). The first charitable cash contribution of $100.00 came from J. E. Sutton, former principal and superintendent of Mid-Del Schools.
Renovation of the former South entrance was completed in October 2000. Then alumni and board members selected furniture, fixtures and display cases for the museum. Memorabilia started flowing in and workers got busy cataloging and displaying the various donations.
In 2018 the building name was changed from MCHS Museum to MCHS History Center in conjunction with the building and dedication of the new MCHS Vietnam Memorial and Bomber Plaza.
On March 29, 2021, the existing Board of Directors of the MCHSM, Inc. agreed to the conveyance of MCHSM, Inc. to the MCHS Vietnam Memorial Project Committee.
A number of Midwest City High School class reunions have toured the MCHS History Center. These tours have led to many donations of both money and memorabilia. Comments from visitors continually confirm that this is a first class facility and covers all aspects of high school life.
