A phenomenal Jewish museum in Tulsa, OK?????

Tulsa is a town of world class museums, such as Philbrook and Gilcrease, but one would hardly expect to discover a Jewish museum in a city of less than 2000 Jews. However, the... read more

Tulsa is a town of world class museums, such as Philbrook and Gilcrease, but one would hardly expect to discover a Jewish museum in a city of less than 2000 Jews. However, the Sherwin Miller Museum of Jewish Art is a viable part of Tulsa's art scene. The docents are friendly and knowledgable. Allow several hours for your tour, as... More

This museum is a hidden jewel tucked in South Tulsa. You're greeted by unique architecture on the outside, and a number of very interesting art pieces and displays on the inside. Need something different to do on a cold or rainy day -- here you go! Call ahead for hours of operation.

The staff was great, well worth the admission and we only had time to see half of the exhibits. Very touching and was not emotionally prepared for the holocaust exhibit, but as my title states, it's a must see for everyone, maybe the world would have an understanding what the Jewish people have suffered, and how other groups suffered under...

One of the best Jewish art exhibits in the country. There is also a Holocaust exhibit, and there are a lot of educational exhibits. One of the things I really enjoyed was the displays of various Jewish items from different parts of the world; Persian, African, etc. Check out their website at http://jewishmuseum.net/ Also entrance fees are very reasonable. Keep... More

Was surprised to find this gem in Tulsa. Was well worth our time and the small admission fee. Permanent collection was impressive. The involvement of the community, especially local school kids was moving. The art contest winners from the middle school grades were insightful beyond their years.
