Long known for its stellar Native collection, The Gilcrease has stepped up its game by hosting many Native artists now. Always a great visit here.

My husband and I love visiting museums, and we loved every nook and cranny of this one. It was definitely worth the time and price of admission!

My first trip to Tulsa and we chose the Gilcrease because it has reciprocity with my home city Seattle Art Museum. It did not disappoint. A wonderful and extensive collection of American Western Art, including Native American art and artifacts. Really a worthwhile visit. The grounds and adjoining part are beautiful. It was a golden late Fall day and the... More

A marvelous collection of western paintings and sculpture. Many Frederick Remington. Particularly liked the Trompe-l'oeil paintings. Educational and enjoyable way to spend hours in Tulsa. Walk the grounds.

While there are constant interesting exhibits and events at Gilcrease, I find the paintings from the Native American artists captivating. The colors and styles greatly appeal to me. The paintings of Western landscapes are also a favorite. Then there is the room on the lower level that has all the Native American artifacts on display or in display drawers, fascinating... More

The museum itself is beautiful. Take time to appreciate all the fossils in the stone walls. Also ask about its interesting history -- who was Gilcrease, how did he make his money, how did they acquire the land. The rooms and lighting are wonderfully arranged to display the art. The collection itself is magnificent. Don't miss this.

Lots of interesting native America art and relics on display. I especially liked the bronze casts and the wood carvings. I spent the morning there and really enjoyed it.

The museum is wonderful, loaded with a very extensive collection of western and native American art. It was nice to see such a concentration of this. Interesting layout and beautiful grounds, even on a rainy day. There were several school groups there the day we visited but it was still easy to see the collections. I would plan on a... More
