Was not expecting to enjoy this as much as I did having never been a museum sort of person. Very well laid out and easy to wander around whilst enjoying the artwork, which was beautiful. 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.

Gilcrease Museum and the Helmerich Center for American Research is a must experience property! Located minutes from downtown Tulsa, a thriving Art Community has been established, nurtured and is growing. Oklahoma has a stunning Gem…..

The artwork is fabulous. I have visited with family, friends and have taken Tulsa Public School children there for visits. Each time I visit, I am impressed with the lovely displays. We have enjoyed eating in the restaurant there also.

I'm not even a fan of western art but I thoroughly enjoyed my time at the Gilcrease. It sits on a hill with multiple gardens to stroll through, I highly recommend a visit!

The view is beautiful of the Osage hills. You can learn so much about Native Americans and their different tribes and cultures. It is amazing to see one mans vision from many years ago still educating others today. New addition to museum opens this weekend.

We were in Tulsa for a long weekend and made a morning visit to this museum. We ended up staying over a half day because of the seemingly endless exhibits. Native American art and artifacts seem to dominate, but there are many early American paintings and bronzes of Russell, Remington, and many other perhaps lesser known American artists. We didn't...

Brought my young daughter here to fill in time between visiting sick friends. The museum wasn't what I expected, but having said that, it was fabulous. It had great interactive activities for kids, a fabulous restuarant attached and the museum staff were fabulous, friendly and helpful. Make the effort if you get the chance and visit here.
