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

They were offering free admission last summer and a group of my firiends and I loved the museum. We are all on a fixed income and it was a great opportunity for to have an outing.

Fine small art and archeology museum is best seen with one of the staff or other guides available. Some unusual and fascinating pieces in the collection. Worth a visit.

This was my third and final stop on a day trip to Shawnee with two lady friends. There was no admission charge during summer months. Collection includes an Egyptian mummy, a life-size portrait of a 20th century Pope, Renaissance art, and some whimsical modern art

The art collection at this museum is impressive. A Benedictine monk, traveling the world in the early 20th Century collected treasures unbelievable to find in such an obscure location. Small town Shawnee, Oklahoma is home for the Benedictine Monestary and only Catholic University in the state. Invited in the 1880's by the Potawatomie Nation to their land at Sacred Heart... More

You'll be surprised that a city the size of Shawnee has such an outstanding museum. Free summer admission through August. Easy access on a beautiful, historical small college campus, St. Gregory's University.

Make a point of visiting this amazing museum! The collection rivals that of larger museums in larger cities. The museum is located on the campus of St Gregory's University. Parking is free and admission is often free in the summer.
