I live in Shawnee and we enjoy trips to the museum with the grandkids, as well as without! Fantastic collection of artifacts on the campus of St. Gregory's College. A highly recommended stop for lovers of history and art.

Intimate, nice, great to find, small but feels like I am walking through an old friend's beautiful home, educational, and wonderful for a person, family, or a couple. A great place for students and art lovers of all ages. I will return and bring my husband to view it with me!!! :-)

This museum is very small but well laid out. If you go, be sure to go when there is an exhibit there. Unfortunately, we went just after one ended & the new one wasn't set up yet so 1/2 of the the museum was closed as they were at the start of setting up a new exhibit. This is the... More

It's intimate and you want to see it twice before you leave. The staff is friendly and will help you understand the artwork. I will definitely return!

Out in the middle of Oklahoma is a jewel of a museum. It is located At St. Gregory's university and is a small but significant historical gem. As an historian, I truly enjoyed the visit and spent way too much time absorbing the wonderful ambiance and reading every exibits' information .A must see in Shawnee

I have been visiting the Mabee-Gerrer Museum for a number of years, they have a variety of exhibits which rotate, with special exhibits on view. This isn't a huge museum, but the quality of the art and the exhibits is exceptional, including a nice collection of Egyptian artifacts, something you don't expect in Oklahoma. Don't miss this museum!

We did a tour of this museum with one of the docents, Jean Lancaster, and she gave life to everything we saw! This museum is a true hidden jewel in the town of Shawnee! We will return again and again.

This is an amzing collection of all sorts of primituve art and artifacts. They have pre columbian, egyptian, and art from world famous artists. This is at a working Catholic abbey so some of the exhibits focus on Catholicsm. But a rare chance to see objects that you would normally see.

After driving past the entrance to the museum (it's on the campus at St Gregory's) I finally went in for a show and was really amazed by it. I had not expected to find such a nice gallery and museum tucked away on the outskirts of Shawnee. They get some really nice traveling shows and sometimes do theme displays of... More
