The Gilcrease Museum has one of the greatest collections of Western art in the world. Most people don't know it but they also have one of the original copies of the Declaration of Independence. There's a great room downstairs with tons of artifacts in drawers to explore.

Walking through room to room, you'll be in awe of the rich history we have. The Western Art and Hudson River artists are breathtaking. Appreciate the Indian art and artifacts as well.

We were very surprised by the amount of artwork exhibited at the Gilcrease Museum. Many famous artists such as Remington, Russell, Moran, Inness, Bierstadt, Taos Artists, and many others. Ans a delightful restaurant for lunch, with excellent food.

This place is bigger than it looks from the street. We had a full visit. Note it may take a little more time than you would expect. Good place to spend a hot day.

I found this tourist attraction online and the description sounded intriguing. The Gilcrease Gardens and Museum is located in Sand Springs, OK. It is easy to find and there are many signs directing guests to the grounds. The gardens are beautiful kept and a photographers dream to capture. The Gilcrease house, which is not open to the public, dates back... More

I Love Thomas Moran and his expresion to which he put onto canvas. Gilcrease has the world's largest collection of Thomas Moran works in mediums of every kind. I especially enjoy sitting in front of his enormous "Shoshone Falls on the Snake River," and feeling its every movement.

This museum is located a short distance from downtown Tulsa. The hilly setting provides a picturesque backdrop to this wonderful museum. The museum offers several galleries of Native Art, sculptures and paintings. Inside tip: if you visit on a Tuesday admission is free.

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
