We spent about 2 hours here. The dinning area looked very nice. If you are in Tulsa this is a must see... More

The Philbrook Museum is located in the mansion owned by the Phillips family, built during the boom of the 1920's and donated as an art museum when the Phillips sold off their oil interests (for $25 million) and moved to New Mexico.

Our family has been coming to the Philbrook for over 10 years. It has been a great experience for each age of my kids as they have gotten older. It is awesome inside and out and in every season... Make time to go! You won't regret it...

Anytime you get a chance to go to the Philbrook, I recommend doing it. The food has a fantastic presentation as well as quality and taste. It's like they take the artists of the culinary world and add them to the mix for an absolutely exceptional experience. GO. It is worth every effort. My wife and I always enjoy it.... More

Loved the artistic Christmas tree displays and the cute gingerbread houses. Fall leaves made the garden beautiful.
