The Gilcrease Museum is a somewhat hidden treasure of Tulsa. It is an amazing collection of art and artifacts depicting the American west. The museum is well organized and includes paintings and sculptures which can be viewed up close and personal. Staff members can be found throughout the museum to answer questions and enhance the visitor's experience. The various rooms... More

They do have an impressive collection in the Gilcrease Museum but most of the artifacts I was interested in seeing were kept downstairs in drawers I had to search through to view. Also, my wife and I ate lunch at the Museum; the buffet was mediocre at best and highly overpriced at nearly $50.00 for two. This was my one... More

This museum isn't far from downtown Tulsa, and is a must see, if you are in the area. The entrance fee is reasonable, and the day we were there, the museum wasn't crowded. I was amazed by the variety of work and the amount that was on display. Gilcrease Museum staff are helpful and very friendly. The grounds around the... More

Well set up representation of art of the southwest and Latin America. Cool and peaceful. Beautiful views from the grounds as well as from a glass enclosed area in the museum

Best collection of Western art (as in Remington, Cole, those guys) I've seen -- not a huge museum, can be done in a few hours. Gorgeous gardens, too, like the Phillbrook's. A little light on the Indian side, considering the huge windows look out onto the Osage reservation. The really good Indian stuff is in drawers in the basement. They... More

Gilcrease is a breathtaking museum. The paintings are tastefully displayed and depict many scenes from the west as well as animals and portraits of famous americans. The sculptures are interesting as well but my favorite is the genuine Native American clothing and dress bonnets as well as weapons and moccasins. There are also US cavalry uniforms and boots from the... More

I only had half a day free in Tulsa, so after doing a little research I decided to give the Gilcrease Museum a visit. The museum specialises in art and history of Native Americans. The exhibits were well presented, information was interesting and the art was impressive. I'm so pleased that I chose to spend a couple of hours there,... More

Nice museum, but was very disappointed that there was no photography of any kind allowed in the museum. Hard to share memories without pics.

At the Gilcrease you'll see the profoundly dynamic works of Remington, Russell and many other poets of the paintbrush. You may want spend a few hours there because, because if you're a lover of art, masterpiece after masterpiece will fascinate you.
