I visit this museum every time I go to Tulsa. The collection of Western, Native American, and American art is spectacular. And don't miss the basement where they have an extensive research collection. The curators downstairs are always so happy to discuss any of the collections with you! LOVE IT!

The Gilcrease features both changing exhibitions and elements from their substantial collection. Trail of Tears Indian resettlement exhibit gave us new insights into the history. Some truly impressive pieces of western art, native artwork, and sculptures kept us entranced for hours. Enjoyed the Gilcrease Museum history and hope to return after the museum expands. Also, do try their restaurant; innovative... More

You won't find a better museum around. It is worth driving several hundred miles to visit. There is always something new and it is very affordable. If you love southwestern art, artifacts, history, this is it!

What a wonderful, small hidden gem!!! Wonderful Gilcrease pieces - the Remington's are incredible. The 2000 year old Mexican art pieces are stunning. The Native American pieces are spectacular. Definitely worth the time. We were sorry miss the chocolate exhibit that begins next month. Speaking of chocolate- check out Glacier Confectioners located less than 10 minutes away. Their chocolate is... More

I have gone to Gilgrease Museum of American and Western Art for 50 years and it never grows old. I see and learn new things about Native American and Western art, and American history every time I go; the collection seems to be endless. Art, sculpture, artifacts, original documents, special exhibits, research facilities, gardens and a view of the Tulsa... More

Will admit - I traveled to museum from Oklahoma City to view the permanent collection - but really loved the unexpected showcasing the photos of Frida Khalo. Unexpected view of her pictures, as seen by friends and family - and those letters between her and her longtime lover Nickolas Muray - were a hoot! Who knew Frida had such humor... More

This is our first time here and "Wow", we were very pleasantly surprised. Even before entering the museum, we were impressed with the grounds, the gardens and the location. The museum sits on high ground and the view of the surrounding area is awesome. The museum exhibits and collections were truly wonderful. The layout of the building as well as... More
