“A villa, a museum, a garden, a park - all in one!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2012

I have been to dozens of art museums. This one represents a nice change of pace, displaying a variety of styles, medium and centuries of art in a "home" setting.

A great afternoon or day trip. A lot of excellent art exhibits in a beautiful historical old mansion that pays tribute to Tulsa's rich history.

“Beautiful Grounds, good art museum.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2011

The Philbrook is a good art museum. The building is amazing, especially when one considers the original structure was a home. I could wander and gaze at this part of the building for a long time. The artwork is really great artwork. However, I think the best part of this museum is the gardens. In spring and early summer the gardens and grounds are enchanting. You can wonder all over for hours There are the formal paths through the more structured gardens or you can wander off the path in to the trees. The grounds truly are a wonderful place to roam in the middle of the city. The restaurant is also good. Whenever I eat at the restaurant I feel like I am really treating myself to something special, between the atmosphere and the food... amazing.
