We were part of a tour group and the guide was well-informed. She explained the architecture's symbolism and how this adds to the church's worship experience. That the designer is a woman was a pleasant surprise. Our tour lasted about 1 1/2 hours, but it seems much shorter, as the meaning of lighting, design lines, and color were explained. There... More

Oh, my, what a beautiful structure and magnificent house of worship! I have attended worship services, weddings and funerals at Boston Avenue. If you like, after worship, someone will take you on a tour of the beautiful facilities. If you haven't visited, you have missed a real Tulsa Treasure.

19,16, 10 yo and two adults LOVED this. We were the only ones in the building save the janitor…the prayer chapel is beautiful, the architecture outside is something to marvel and gawk at, the mosaic tile art inside the building, the stained glass, the lighting fixtures, the doors, the ceiling in the sanctuary…the sanctuary itself….we truly ALL were amazed.

Boston Methodist church is a very beautiful building inside and outside! The Church staff were friendly and the church service was a bible based service ! The whole building was clean and kept in a regal manner befitting that type of a building!

Friendly and welcoming staff, the building is amazingly beautiful all over, the ceilings, lights in the hallways are breath taking, the sanctuary is being renovated still worth the visit. This was our first time visiting I can't remember the exact name for it but, the room where they keep the cremated bodies, nice and peaceful room

Beautiful church. They were repainting the ceiling in the main auditorium. This was a magnificent building. we had a great tour with some great people who really loved their church. This is really a good place to visit, especially the price, free.

I didn't go inside but it's a must see! Very impressive! The architecture is beautiful! Plus, you can the bells ring on the evening and it made a nice melody :)

Spectacular example of Art Deco architecture in the heart of lovely Tulsa. Stop by to admire the decor. If you are staying consider a service. They have everything you can think of for children including summer camp activities and they welcome visitors. A must see on an architectural tour of Tulsa!
