“Our favorite place to frequent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2013

No matter the season, the Philbrook is always amazing. Sunday brunch is worth the reservation. The gardens are always well groomed. The staff is amazing! We have been taken into the pipe organs, asked to help feed the koi, and been encouraged to help ourselves to the vegetables and peppers growing in the gardens! They have fun programs for the kids. Activity backpacks, scavenger hunts, and free art boxes with free monthly refills of art supplies!

“Excellent Art Collection in Magnificent Setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

We've been visiting the Philbrook for many years. The restoration of the gardens a few years back have made it better than ever. If you're there when a docent is available for a tour, take advantage of this opportunity for detailed knowledge of the building, the family and more.

This is a great places to visit with a family and as a photographer I could take photos here for days. This is the best museum I've ever visited.

“Beautiful Grounds and Gorgeous Art”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

The extensive museum grounds are a visual treat throughout the year. The museum itself has a lovely permanent collection of fine art and hosts a great assortment of traveling exhibits. My wife and I keep an annual membership and visit several times a year.

The museum (as of my last visit) allows photography (no flash).

“Excellent Art Museum in the Heartland”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

I really enjoyed this beautiful, interesting, and informative museum. The setting is gorgeous and I really appreciated how manageable the size of the collection was. Unlike the Smithsonian or the Louvre, you could really spend time to get to know each piece. This is the real deal; there's Rodin, Mann, Picasso, and Dali. Tulsa gets big bonus points for this attraction.
