Gilcrease is ever a delight to behold with many showings of art from around the world as well as native Oklahoman's creations. You could easily spend a week in this lush setting with flower beds to put a smile on your face as you enter this lovely museum.

I only had 45 minutes before closing time, the security guard helped explain what was where, very well. I may be a bit skewed by this short visit, as I thought it better to hurry through and see almost all instead of focus on a little. There is a great collection of southwest art and native American art. This is... More

It would be easy to spend most of a day at Gilcrease. We spent about 3 hours, and barely skimmed the surface of the Native American collection. If you are a fan of Frederic Remington, you will be in heaven. I had no idea how prolific he was!

I take my kids there every month on Saturday. Free admissions and great activities (for these Saturdays only). Plus, you can show your kids all the great art and traveling galleries they get. Enriching and fun!

Thomas Gilcrease collected western and native american art before it was cool. Wonderful depictions of the real West!

Whether or not you like Western art, or even are an art fan, this place is worth the trip. One of best collections in the US, very well displayed, with easy parking, a nice building, and a restaurant with high quality food, reasonably priced.

One of the best museums you'll find in the U.S. Probably the best North American Indian museum in the country. They have many original Bierstadt, Moran and Remmington pieces. I was taken by surprise to find they had Charles Wilson Peale portraits of James Madison and George Washington...and the "End of the Trail" statue. Do not miss Gilcrease museum. By... More

If you love Native American art then you would enjoy the museum but if not the park surrounding the museum is worth the stop it is a great place to walk. It is a little peaceful hideaway in the city where you can sit and be in nature for some serenity.
