I have been visiting Gilcrease Museum since 1975. I have watched it grow into an outstanding museum of western and native American art. It also has an extensive collection of early American documents. The displays are always well-presented. Outside collections and special displays are also a regular part of Gilcrease. I am looking forward to the Sept. 11 West Mexico... More

I have been to Gilcrease Museum many times over the past several years and each visit was nice. When a grandchild reaches the age where I believe they will enjoy the museum I plan a day trip that includes Gilcrease. A good age is very child dependent and I've taken 8 year olds that did quite well and enjoyed the... More

I took my 10 year old granddaughter here at her request. Lots of art and amazing artifacts. We saw a Frieda Kahlo exhibit, which was amazing. Price breaks for kids and seniors, which is always appreciated. Docents are VERY helpful on how to make the most of your visit. The kids exhibits/rooms/activities are quite nice. Their gift shop is also... More

One of a series of interesting exhibits. Though this was the featured exhibit there is much more to see. There are astounding works of art; both classic and historic. I highly recommend a visit to Gilcrease Museum.

Everyone should visit Gilcrease Museum. The art collection is fascinating and is frequently rotated. You will find classic American art and western and southwestern art. Much of the Native American art cannot be found anywhere else. It is beautiful and priceless. There is a restaurant in the museum with a beautiful view of the hills and valleys and the food... More
