Not having been to Tulsa before, we didn't know what to expect of the museums here. The Gilcrease is a must-see for anyone with many excellent pieces dating back to the beginnings of western America. Their research lab on the Native Americans is outstanding.

The Gilcrease Museum is Tulsa's connection to its Native American, Indian and Western roots. Here you can learn about the people who understood and loved the land and their struggles with adapting to development and shifts in power.

The gardens outside are just as nice to spend time in so give yourself enough time to take it all in. Even the restaurant was... More

Another great stop on the Tulsa museum circuit! Plan to visit with enough time to stroll through the grounds at Gilcrease, as they're very nicely maintained and beautiful.
