As a Tulsa resident, I have visited Philbook infrequently since the 1980's. I was first there with my grade school children and back from time to time during the holidays. Most recently I visited with my youngest daughter and her children, my 14 and 11 year old granddaughters. Both the kids are very much into art, but in very different... More

The museum & grounds are a trip to the opulent early oil boom days when building your own Italian Villa was a sign you were one of the top oil Barons Collections of art were wonderfully diverse and fit the villa. With travel west it was only natural to collect Native American art if you're lucky you could catch a... More

Built on a spacious formal garden by one of Tulsa's original oil baron's, this museum rivals those found in the major cities of the U.S. and even Europe. The displays are exquisite. The docents are extremely knowledgeable. We were told ahead of time to book brunch at the museum and it was a fitting start to a wonderful experience.

We love to visit the Philbrook at Christmas :) They always have a fun CHRISTmas tree exhibit! Of course the gardens are especially gorgeous during the summer!

I just took my son there as he hadn't visited the bodacious structure since he was a tyke. We both enjoyed our visit there & our time together.

I have been going to Philbrook for years and always enjoy my visit. I became a member this year and it is worth supporting such a fine museum. Philbrook is very active in the community and encourages all ages to enjoy art.

Over the years I have been to Philbrook many times for events ranging from exhibits to wine tastings. Every time I am amazed at the place. It has such a wonderful feel to it and the exhibits are always top notch. I look forward to taking my mother to the Festival of Trees every Christmas season. Always interesting to see... More

The Philbrook's collection is somewhat limited but what they do have is very nice. One of the main draws are the interactive events and community classes they offer. As far as setting, the Philbrook has one of the most beautiful outdoor sites I've seen. Be sure to bring your camera!

Philbrook is simply top-notch on so many levels. The collections and traveling exhibits are on par with the finest museums in big cities and the architecture and grounds are spectacular. Two campuses - the one on South Rockford is set in an italianate villa and the one "on the Green" in the Brady Arts District houses the Barnes collection as... More

Love the museum and that I can comfortably bring my kids to enjoy it. I enjoy the springtime second Saturday's as well because my kids can run throught the gardens, do the scavenger hunt & enjoy rolling down the big hill. Wonderful.
