We visited for the 1st time and were surprised at all they had to see. There are many indian artifacts, along with many types of paintings. Spent a couple of hours looking at exhibits. They have beautiful gardens as well, but didn't check those out since it's summer in Oklahoma.

I typically visit when there is a special event, but the collection is wonderful also. Admission is minimal or free...I say this because I do not think I have paid in years, but am not a member. The landscaping is pleasant and the gift shop is a great place to grab a souvenir or even shop for birthdays or Christmas... More

Especially if you love Western and Native American art! Also beautiful views of the outdoors, northeastern Oklahoma does have lots of hills and beautiful foliage. Beautiful gardens to walk through. Also there are traveling art exhibits. The restaurant onsite is also very good. Definitely worth your time, but don't go if you are in a hurry. This is the place... More

This is the most enjoyable and largest historic museum I have been to in Oklahoma -- and I've been to quite a few, including the Western Heritage Museum. The collection here is so huge that it's hard to believe you're not in Chicago or DC. A MUST if you're into native American items. It would take hours/days to do this... More

I've been a handful of times and it grows on me! They have had a couple great exhibits that have really impressed me, like the one on George Washington! I'd suggest if you are local, to wait until an exhibit comes through and go on a Free Sunday.

Revisited this wonderful American and old masters art and artifacts collection with friends who had never seen it. They have visited many museums in the east and around the world. They agreed with us that it one of the best collections they have seen anywhere. We also had a great lunch on site.

Focus on western art and artifacts, like Fredrick Remington, CM Russell, and Thomas Moran. I try to go every time I'm in Tulsa. First rate!

I was on a business trip from Georgia, and I chose this place to visit because the native american displays were of more interest to me (personally) than the Philbrook, which I am sure is just as wonderful! Anyhow, I spent a good two hours inside the museum, and upon my exit, I walked across the lawn to the old... More

This is a very nice museum, displaying western art and indian artifacts. We stayed about 2 hours and that really was not enough time to properly explore. They have a very nice collection of Fredrick Remington and Charles Russell paintings and large bronzes. The museum collections are mostly American artists including Native American artists. They also have acres of gardens... More

Amazing collection of art and history. The American Indian exhibit is such a wonderfully exciting and informative piece - it warrants its own visit. The building has many turns and twists and its too easy to get turned around so keep your little ones close - Staff and security personnel are there to assist if necessary. Don't forget the gardens... More
