They have an extensive art collection and great exhibits. We had previously seen a great exhibit on George Washington-his life and times.

This is a delightful collection of serious western art assembled by Thomas Gilcrease. In addition to the massive collection of western art, there is worthwhile art from around the world and many items created within Oklahoma. The basement contains massive amounts of western artifacts housed in drawers and all are searchable on their computers. In addition to the art and... More

They have many special exhibits, but I alway go to the basement where they have drawers full of artifact that one can cross-reference on the computers they have available.

One of the gems of Tulsa. Can't miss for anyone remotely interested in Western Art. If you spend 3 days in Tulsa, it is a must. If you live here and haven't been, then you must go.

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!
