Very interesting Museum. Well worth spending a nice afternoon, although if you just have an hour or two you can easily speed through. Interesting piece of history.

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.

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.
