I was totally astonished by what they exhibit for a small museum. A little bit of everything is how I can define it. You won't be disappointed

A hidden gem in Shawnee. There is a bit of culture and ancient artifacts from around the world and time periods. You can learn a lot and a great place to take students!

This museum is surprising. Started by a Benedictine priest, it showcases a variety of world art, with many American painters represented. They also have visiting exhibits, so call to inquire.

I visited this museum because my son has an interest in Egyptian artifacts. He thought the mummy was very interesting. Who knew Oklahoma had one? There are some nice exhibits, but not a lot of them. Downside was it was very hard to locate the museum once we arrived at the destination.

My husbands review: An eclectic collection of cultural artifacts from around the world gives texture to both time and place with a smattering of oddities and standard museum pieces, all of which delight the sense and ignite the imagination. My review: This museum really rocks! :) Our 9 and 11 year old boys enjoyed most of the museum and they... More

This is a hidden gem of a great museum in Oklahoma. It is the only museum in Oklahoma that has an Egyptian mummy! The museum is not large, but is nice as one of the other things to do in Shawnee.

I LOVE that during the summer they have camps for kids. They also have a REAL mummy! Pretty cool. I remember having school trips here all the time. They also have a theater attached. This place is kid friendly although you don't need to let them out of your sight because obviously the paintings are expensive.

You will be so surprised at the diverse range and quality of art and artifacts on display. The only mummies in Oklahoma! Nice Egyptian, Roman and Greek collections. Really cool African masks and carved figures. Be sure to check out the power monkey. Phenomenal paintings from renaissance to modern, including two Tintoretto's, a Bougereau, several Hudson river and Taos School... More
