This is a wonderful museum, we had a great time with all the exhibits, lots to see, you will really enjoy. Also it's free for June July and August. Staff was fun and full of energy. Check out the ivory jewelry box. List goes on and on.

We went on a Sunday afternoon and had the place to ourselves. The gentleman at the reception desk was very friendly and informative. This is not a large museum but it has a lot of variety and is well worth the time to go through. Finding the building is not easy and they could solve that by putting a small... More

The Mabee-Gerrer is a small museum yet they fit a little bit of nearly every culture into their well laid out museum. They have even added a second mummy to their collection. I make a point to visit any time I am in the area.

I was totally astonished by what they exhibit for a small museum. A little bit of everything is how I can define it. You won't be disappointed

A hidden gem in Shawnee. There is a bit of culture and ancient artifacts from around the world and time periods. You can learn a lot and a great place to take students!

This museum is surprising. Started by a Benedictine priest, it showcases a variety of world art, with many American painters represented. They also have visiting exhibits, so call to inquire.

I visited this museum because my son has an interest in Egyptian artifacts. He thought the mummy was very interesting. Who knew Oklahoma had one? There are some nice exhibits, but not a lot of them. Downside was it was very hard to locate the museum once we arrived at the destination.

My husbands review: An eclectic collection of cultural artifacts from around the world gives texture to both time and place with a smattering of oddities and standard museum pieces, all of which delight the sense and ignite the imagination. My review: This museum really rocks! :) Our 9 and 11 year old boys enjoyed most of the museum and they... More
