Goodbye Gilcrease Museum
Jun 2021 • Friends
I made a point to go visit before they closed the doors for the next couple of years to build the new museum. Nice photography collection of Tulsa landmarks were on display. Of course lots of western and Native American art were through out the galleries.

I was honored to view a handwritten copy of the Declaration of Independence used in 1777 by Benjamin Franklin as part of his diplomatic communication with the court of Frederick the Great of Prussia.

Personally I liked the building and sad to know it is going to be torn down to make way for the new modern facility because the current location has great character and a unique design. The grounds are beautiful and it was nice to see Thomas Gilcrease's final resting place and say my respects.

I'm glad I was able to see the current place before it is gone forever. I understand the need to build a larger location to be able to showcase more items and I'm sure the future site will be a great museum when it is completed.

Explore the Gardens

I loved the Gilcrease Museum not just for all the art inside but for the tranquil gardens outdoors. After a stressful year, seeing turtles piled up sunning themselves on logs reminded me that life is continuing. If you visit, be sure to take time to explore the ponds in the park behind the museum.

Really Nice Art Work
May 2021
The Gilcrease Museum in Tulsa has some nice selections of western art. It was so fun looking at the different paintings of western life. I enjoyed the photo exhibit from local photographers in Tulsa.

Stunning! Wish we had more than 2 hours - we felt sooooo rushed.

This museum was a last minute add to our trip. So glad we did this. We spent 2 hours at the museum and we felt so rushed. One of the best museum in a mid-size town in the USA.

1) The Native American Art collection was curated so that the art was easily seen and also understood within the context of the lives of those who made the pieces.
2) Remingtons, Remingtons, Remingtons - If you want to see both his 3 dimensional AND 2 dimensional work - this IS the place.
3) Other galleries - equal to all other exhibitions.

Kudos to the staff for this totally unexpected treat. Thanks to our niece who lives in town and said we MUST visit, even if we were rushed. She was so right!

Wonderful, a do not miss museum. Especially notable western and Native American art collections. Remington, Russell and Moran paintings and sculptures amongst others. Easy to navigate the spacious galleries. Even if your not big into art, you will enjoy this place.

I am really glad we were able to visit this museum as we have been wanting to for quite some time. I loved looking at all the Native American pictures and I loved the history of the museum's development.
