Fantastic! A must see if you've never been to Tulsa. Astonishing priceless pieces of art and famous paintings from private collections around the world. Also the building, previously a private home, is spectacular and the gardens are unreal. It's like being in Italy.

Philbrook is a small museum that is definitely worth a few hours of your time. The exhibits change from time to time so we go almost every time we are in Tulsa to visit family. Behind the museum are lovely gardens so make sure you wander through them as well as through the museum.

The Philbrook Museum is beautiful inside and outside! It has a great art collection and beautiful gardens! There's also a wonderful restaurant inside (I think it's called LaVilla) that is very good! We ate the Sunday brunch buffet and it was delicious! Fun place to go for families, couples, or even just by yourself!

I've lived in Tulsa for 2 years now and finally made it to Philbrook Museum of Art. I started outside while it was still cool out and the grounds are beautiful. It was so peaceful with the fountains and water. I was also pleasantly surprised with the museum itself. I love that it was originally someone's home. The architecture alone... More

We spent several enjoyable hours at this lovely mansion, art museum and gardens. Suprised at the range of art on display in a beautiful property overlooking lovely gardens and terraces. Had a very nice lunch here too overlooking the gardens but we were lucky to get the last table so you may want to book as you enter the property... More

Beautiful place that houses a large array of art from different times. The place use to be a mansion and some of the rooms are still in their original set up. If you admire artwork, you will love it so go. If not, you will abhor it so don't.

Nice experience. Stroll around the gardens and the house, but would recommend doing so during comfortable weather. They also serve a brunch that is delicious on Sundays.

Beautiful, serene, historical, and educational, a place where art meets history and art and history come alone in a quiet and beautiful place!

The Philbrook is a marvelous, elegant collection of art in an amazing setting. The grounds are worth the visit even without looking at the amazing collection of art.

not as enjoyable as i thought it would be just mostly an attempt to get money out of you for souvenirs and not a lot of people around to really engage you in the museum it self.
