Exhibits made the art accessible. Really appreciated the background information (facts) about the subjects of the painting rather than telling the veiwer how they should feel about the piece or what the artist was trying to convey.

"THOMAS GILCREASE INSTITUTE OF AMERICAN HISTORY & ART" holds more than paintings, sculptures and art treasures. For example - you may see on your visit 2000 master artist paintings, on a rotating basis, of more than 10,000 that are there. You can view 25 Thomas Moran works, from over 2500 in the Moran collection. There are approximately 100,000 items in... More

This museum is truly outstanding. It contains one of the largest American Indian collection in the US. They recently added a rare document wing to house the extensive collection of old documents. There are also galleries for traveling exhibits. Wonderful in all regards.

I really enjoyed our visit to the Gilcrease. They have a lot of paintings and sculpture. We went on a rainy Saturday morning and practically had the place to ourselves for awhile. We really enjoyed the Native American artifacts in the basement. They have drawers full of various things such as moccasins, pipes, dolls, and other artifacts. We spent about... More

Native American, european, and indigenous art galore...Check schedule for kids activities, and every 3rd Sunday is free. The best part, the buffet BRUNCH on Sundays in restaurant.

Beautifully displayed, this museum has a wide ranging collection. Strongest are the Indian artifacts in the Kravis Discovery Center downstairs. An amazing array of moccasins, bowls, weapons, etc. The photography rules, though, are a bit difficult. Be ready to be yelled at for inappropriately, though innocently, taking pictures.
