My wife and I enjoyed seeing the works of art done by the masters we learned about in school. On top of that there is a variety of newer works that highlight the diversity of our world. You don’t have to be an expert on art to enjoy this museum. Since entry is free you can come back over and over to enjoy the works of art

......sculpture is above left, this horrid sculpture was hidden away outside of the old museum, would have liked to see it moved from the edge of the campus where it sat for years. It was rather unsightly back then as it didn't fit in which the scheme of things. I imagine the embodiment of this 'Egyptian' sculpture which was sitting tucked away outside the south side of building 20 years ago gave some wise ass architect the idea for this rather mausoleum looking structure of a building to exhibit. It is so out of place in Oklahoma, so glad that I had the opportunity many years ago to visit the on campus museum. OU Alumni 1980, Janet

This is located on the University of Oklahoma campus. There is metered parking in the parking garage across the street. It is a well-laid out museum that has a little bit of everything. I am the most interested in art from ancient to 1900. They have a few good pieces including a Monet, Van Gogh, and Renior. To give it the attention it deserves, you probably want to budget at least an hour and a half. The docents are very helpful if you are looking for a particular area. It is meant to be a museum for adults so it is inadvisable to bring anyone under 10 or so. They will likely be quite bored.

The University of Oklahoma deserves recognition for its football team but even more for its art Museum, the Fred Jones JR. Museum of art which offers free admission to everyone. Its strengths :permanent collections displaying not only amazing traditional and contemporary Native American Art ard, best of all,an incredible collection of French Impressionism featuring Renoir, Van Gogh Monet, Gauguin, nestled in an elegant interior, modeled after the donors' house,, the Weitzenhoffer family. Guaranteed : two hours of pure enchantment before or after the football game!
