I have toured Gilcrease Museum multiple times and find it fascinating on each visit! So much wonderful art regarding Western and Native American history. The docents are well-informed and make my time there a real learning experience. Don't miss this museum!

Simply wonderful American art, special western exhibits and magnificent Native American pieces. It is a very special place and the restaurant is also recommended. (It is "white tablecloth" not food court so be advised)

We went on the recommendation of my girlfriend and her husband who had been married in the Rose Garden a while back.

We visited Gilcrease last Friday 11/7/14 to see the Alexander Hogue exhibit. We were surprised to receive free admission to the museum because of a one day stop-over exhibit of the Washington Bible, as it traveled across the country. Gilcrease often does this type of thing to encourage attendance and viewing of its many world class treasures. The Washington Bible... More

My first visit a year ago was only 2 hours. I vowed if I had another chance I would spend a whole day. That is just what I did in Oct 2014, exploring each gallery to its fullest; had a late lunch in the museum restaurant, they close at 3pm; then finished my visit with a walk through the gardens....

A true hidden gem. Make sure and catch the brunch. The gardens are very well kept and have a great picture opportunity. Stroll down by the pond and experience Osage county at its best.

If you are seeking Oklahoma Art Museums in OKC, or Tulsa, the Gilcrease is a jewel of a Tulsa art museum. The Gilcrease is hidden off the beaten path of huge urban museums, but its art collection is definitely a first place contender. A former Oil Baron used his estate to purchase outstanding works or art paintings, including Bierstadt, Thomas... More
