The Museum portion of the OPOMAC utilizes the area that once housed the mail boxes that served Graham for fifty-seven years. Displayed are many artifacts of Young County history. The area includes the Native American Reserve of Young County, the dream of the Graham brothers' creation of the city, ranching history of the county, and the beginning of the Texas Cattle Raisers Association.
Young County history comes alive with the many permanent exhibits of photographs of oil fields of the 1800s and 1900s. A military collection of uniforms and field equipment date from the American Indian War through the years of the modern American military. Included in the exhibit is art work from a 1940s POW Camp. Photographs from the 1920s depict the culture of the city, the history of the beginnings, the trials of growth, and the enjoyment that citizens of Young County received during the time period.
What once was the work area of the original Post Office is now the Main Gallery area for the many rotating exhibits and art shows featured at the OPOMAC. In addition, a portion of the historical artifacts in the permanent collection are housed in this area. In addition, noted area artists and artisans are featured throughout the year.
