The gardens were some of the best I've ever seen. So tranquil and beautiful. I must have snapped 100+ pics! Also enjoyed the art inside... and the beautiful home. It's hard to believe a family used to live in this huge, ornate mansion. There was nothing I disliked!

While Admission is free on the Second Saturday of every month, my favorite day of the year to visit is the 2nd Saturday of December. On that day, in addition to free admission, the Museum will be hosting the Festival of Trees and the Gingerbread House Contest. Stay till the evening and also enjoy the Philbrook Garden Glow as tens... More

Tulsa's hidden gem. Great collection in great surroundings. The museum is a perfect place for a lazy Saturday. Don't forget it has a great restaurant!

This museum is the home and estate of the founder of Phillips Petroleum. It is very European and beautiful. The gardens and grounds are lovely. The art and furniture are preserved as the residents placed them. The art collection is interesting, but the impact comes from the whole of the estate. I recommend a visit.

We were in Tulsa recently for a wedding and had some time to see a few things, so we searched TripAdvisor for some recommendations. The top choice was the Philbrook Museum, and we can definitely agree with that. The pictures of the grounds, while attractive and intriguing, really don't do justice to the gardens -- they really do need to... More

This is more than an art museum. I love spending time walking through the manicured grounds. It also serves as a beautiful backdrop for photos of all kinds.

This museum is so amazing. The gardens in the back, pond and sculptures are not to miss. There's even a museum cat in the gardens. I thought it was lost; it came close enough to see the tag which said Philbrook. The special exhibits are amazing - Monet was beautiful. This is a five star museum with something for everyone,...

The museum doesn't have tons of art, but the pieces they have are very high quality. Anything ranging from ancient Egypt to Modern. I am very fond of the renaissance pieces. My family and I love it so much, we became members

This museum is amazing. Formerly the house of Waite Phillips, it was donated to Tulsa, and converted to museum use. The gardens are worthy of a trip, alone. The permanent galleries have a good selection of all genres. Traveling exhibits vary widely. There is also a very good restaurant on site. The gift shop has unusual art-related items.

Admission is FREE on the second Saturday of each month. There are also arts & crafts projects and an art supply is given to each child. It can be crowded, though.
