Whether you are a native Oklahoman or a visitor to the state, you will learn about and experience, through art, the West and Native American culture unlike any place in the country. First impressions are often right and when you walk through the entrance doors you will find a beautiful, bright and very appealing space. The whole museum is done... More

Gilcrease is a wonderful museum. It has an extensive collection of impressive and important American art. Art with a focus on the American West is the main focus of the museum's collection there are frequent presentations of other areas of interest. The museum is a beautiful building and the grounds offer a magnificent vista of the Osage Hills. The restaurant... More

The items on permanent display are always rewarding, such as the amazing western landscape paintings by Thomas Moran. But their temporary exhibits can be very uplifting also. In particular, the wood carvings by Willard Stone, personally acquired by Thomas Gilcrease from the sculptor, are amazing, particularly since one of Stone's arms was partially disabled. The chocolate exhibit educated visitors on... More

Beautiful Art and History. So much to see, very updated clean, and very hlpful staff. I suggest spring to enjoy the grounds as well. Fall is nice as well with thf foliage turning at that time of year. The area is very nice. Many things to see and do in the Tulsa area!

Took my 11 year old son to do something educational for a change and was pleasantly surprised with the quality of the displays and historical artifacts. They show lots of fine art as well. My son actually enjoyed the visit and took time looking at and reading about all the cool stuff. I was expecting him to say he was... More

A bit of culture should be included in any travel - and so we visited this marvelously well kept, generous and clean museum with plenty of native American artifacts.

Wonderful museum to visit. We were impressed with the Native American art, the beautiful grounds and the art that reflected the Native Americans life style.

I am from Oklahoma. I have been to what is commonly known as The Cowboy Hall of Fame. But if one wants something smaller, actually better with a beautiful view. Come here. Located in north Tulsa, away from many things. This museum holds many, many beautiful works of art along with artifacts of Native Americans. The view is one to... More

My wife and I just went to the Gilcrease. It's been a number of years since we last visited. Loved the current special exhibits. The Chocolate Story was informative and educational. The chocolate smell throughout the exhibit provided an extra touch. Also loved the David Halpern photo exhibit. He is extremely gifted. He took advantage of taking great shots during... More

This museum qualifies for free entrance with Bank of America partnership by showing your BOA credit or debit card the first full weekend of every month. Excellent experience. Particularly interesting history of oilman Thomas Gilcrease, his collecting, the museum nearly lost and Tulsa's bailout to save it. Beautiful paintings, of course, but really amazing wood carvings by native Oklahoman Willard... More
