We enjoy going to Philbrook Museum. There is history of Tulsa that most people never see or know about. There is a restaurant that serves excellent food that oversees their beautiful gardens. It is a must see for anyone.

We loved both the mansion and downtown locations. The native american art at both was excellent in quality, rivaling pieces shown either in Santa Fe or Taos. You can walk the grounds of the mansion, taking a break while enjoying beautiful birdsong and blooming plants. The staff were outstanding.

Ask at the front desk for the kid friendly art packet. Art here is beautiful and the building is very open with lots of room to spread out. Staff is very friendly and helpful.

Visited the restaurant, shopped at the gift shop and viewed traveling exhibits and regular exhibits. We like to attend activities there - it's a beautiful place.

Including the grounds, this historic estate is well worth a visit! Formerly owned by the Frank Phillips family (Phillips Petroleum), the home and gardens are a visual treat to the eye, but the art contained within is wonderful!

This is one of my most favorite places to take out of town guests! We got lucky and got a private tour for my Mother, my sister and myself that was so informative! Our Tour guide was really good and made the Art even more of a treat! I go back every chance I get.

Philbrook is the Tulsa equivalent to visiting a French chateau even tho it is tres Italianate. Set in Tulsa's nicest neighborhood you can walk the grounds, have lunch in the restaurant, view the rooms/collections or shop in the gift shop filled w unusual artsy affordable things.

Tulsans are proud to have Philbrooks Museum right in the heart of our city! Go to see the spectacular art work and special exhibits, of course. However, be sure to look around the rooms that are open to the public. Imagine the parties and other grand social occasions hosted there when it was home to oil pioneer, Waite Phillips, and... More
