The Chouteau Memorial Museum is located in northeastern Oklahoma in Mayes County along SR 20 on the western banks of the Lake Hudson just west of Salina.
The museum is a running documentary of the life and times of Major Jean Pierre Chouteau, one of the first fur traders in the Three Rivers (the Grand (Neosho) River, the Arkansas River and the Verdigris River) area, circa 1800. Descendant A.P. Chouteau authored a journal of the trials and tribulations of a pre-statehood lifestyle and is on display here.
