Gilcrease has a wonderful permanent collection of Western and Native American art and also has special visiting collections every few months. The restaurant is very nice and has beautiful view from windows. There is also a very nice gift shop which is worth visiting before leaving.

Me and my kids love this place. The place is beautiful especially during Falls. I love to take my kids for taking Falls pictures when trees turns into different colors. beautiful. Another thing I love about this place they provide free crafts activities to kids. Highly recommended.

Not only do they have wonderful programs, for all ages, and jazz quarterly, free w/membership and $8 buffets, but provides world-class exhibits while maintaining their own permanent exhibits. Should be on everyone's list who comes to Tulsa. Views are breathtaking.

See some of this country's best Western and Native art in a beautiful location and with a great restaurant attached. All the great artists like Remington, Sharp, Russell, Moran and many more. Very well laid out for a pleasant time viewing.

I'm in my 60s and I recall my retired-cowboy grandfather coming here when I was a little bitty dude. It was a world-class collection of western art -- Remington, etc. -- that is hard to match. Fort Worth's Amon Carter Museum is its equal. Any visit to Tulsa should include a stop here.

The Gilcrease museum is an asset to Tulsa! Great collection of Western and Native American exhibits. The visiting Irvine collection was excellent. The visiting Jazz exhibit was informative.

I planned a visit to this museum to see the regarded Native American collection, which I enjoyed, but surprisingly some vivid Western canvases stole the show for me. The Native exhibition has a nicely comprehensive collection of artifacts, including a few faithful reproductions you can actually touch to appreciate the craft. The Plains is the best represented, understandably so, but... More

As others have said, they house a great collection of western and Native American arts. I especially loved the research center downstairs. There were so many items in the collection there to view up close. They also had an area just for kids with a large archaeological dig site. My 2 boys loved it. However, I may stray from taking...

very nice experience lots of very brain teasing and fascinating exhibits to keep you reading about them very well labeled and there are more people that work there that are willing to talk about and give you more in-depth information about the things you may see in the museum.
