this place is a real hidden gem. not crowded and has amazing exhibits. amazing artwork from hundreds of years ago as well as Egyptian relics and mummies human and animal. is an excellent place to take older children, from around 8 years old and above, and adults of all ages.

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

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!
