They do have an impressive collection in the Gilcrease Museum but most of the artifacts I was interested in seeing were kept downstairs in drawers I had to search through to view. Also, my wife and I ate lunch at the Museum; the buffet was mediocre at best and highly overpriced at nearly $50.00 for two. This was my one and only visit.

This museum isn't far from downtown Tulsa, and is a must see, if you are in the area. The entrance fee is reasonable, and the day we were there, the museum wasn't crowded. I was amazed by the variety of work and the amount that was on display. Gilcrease Museum staff are helpful and very friendly. The grounds around the museum are well cared for and provide for some beauiful pictures.

Well set up representation of art of the southwest and Latin America. Cool and peaceful. Beautiful views from the grounds as well as from a glass enclosed area in the museum

Best collection of Western art (as in Remington, Cole, those guys) I've seen -- not a huge museum, can be done in a few hours. Gorgeous gardens, too, like the Phillbrook's. A little light on the Indian side, considering the huge windows look out onto the Osage reservation. The really good Indian stuff is in drawers in the basement. They were building a whole new bldg when I was there, so I expect that to change.

Yet another reason to visit Tulsa, one of the prettiest cities on earth, not just the U.S. Really.

Gilcrease is a breathtaking museum. The paintings are tastefully displayed and depict many scenes from the west as well as animals and portraits of famous americans. The sculptures are interesting as well but my favorite is the genuine Native American clothing and dress bonnets as well as weapons and moccasins. There are also US cavalry uniforms and boots from the 1800s. Don't miss the gardens and the Gilcrease house for a pleasant stroll although the house is not open you can walk on the porch. Also there is no photography of any kind in the museum.
The day I went was very crowded and it was hard to find a place to park. When I got ready to pay I was informed it was a free day with lots of kids activities, thus the big crowd.
