The Oklahoma Historical Society will seek $25 million of state bonds from the 2010 Legislature to finance most of a planned $33 million museum in Tulsa that will celebrate the state’s contribution to American popular culture.

Bob Blackburn, executive director of the society, said the 45,000-square-foot museum would be called Oklahoma Pops. Planned features include a restaurant, space for festivals and other events, and a 50-by-80-foot outdoor television screen.
