We love the Gilcrease. There isn't another museum with as deep of a collection of Native American art. The staff are thoughtful and helpful. (In the interest of full disclosure, I'm associated with The University of Tulsa which proudly manages this great museum.)

Gilcrease has a remarkable collection of Native American and Western art. It's close affiliation with the University of Tulsa and leadership by TU has added to its fine reputation for research, preservation and education. The collections of western artists' work are so vast one needs several hours to appreciate them fully. Don't miss it.

Two of my grand kids and I visited Gilcrease on a cold, rainy day. There were very few people visiting, so moving around the exhibits was easy. Since the last time that I visited, there has been an attempt to make the museum more kid-friendly. Since my alma mater (University of Tulsa) operates the museum, I was pleased to see... More

I can spend hours! Gilcrease Museum is a hidden treasure in the rolling hills of Tulsa OK. A collection of western art so large that only 1/8th of it can be displayed at any one time! Remington, Moran, Russell, Bierstadt and many others! It's not only western art! Artifacts that will amaze! Beautiful gardens and a nice restaurant make Gilcrease... More

This is the best collection of American Western art I have ever seen. Gorgeous works by Thomas Moran, Joseph Henry Sharp, George de Forest Brush and Charles Russell. Loved seeing the Remington sculptures. Really wonderful.

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.
