Philbrook Museum of Art
Serving an average of 150,000 visitors annually, Philbrook has become a poignant testimony to Tulsa's past while building a shining example of this city's bright future. Through the generosity of Trustees, Donors, and the George Kaiser Family Foundation, Philbrook opened a new satellite facility in Tulsa's Brady Arts District on June 14, 2013. Philbrook Downtown features the Museum's growing collection of Modern and contemporary art as well as highlights from the Native American collection, and includes the Eugene B. Adkins Collection and Study Center.
The outdoor gardens are a must see in Tulsa. The gardeners there are artists themselves. Students at universities in this area get in free as well as kids! Awesome place to enjoy a remodeled mansion. The interior of the home has been restored to hold a significant number of galleries with an Italian renaissance feel to the building. The art on the inside was rather typical of an art museum.
The outside gardens are worth spending a full day in the spring or fall exploring. Easy parking, easy access and nice dining downstairs. Well worth taking along the kiddo to explore outside. Inside is great anytime of the year, but just as enjoyable at the outside! Visit all the areas designated for public access. You can spend a full day visiting each section of the museum.
I love this place, I've been coming here since I was a child. Calming and beautiful. When the gardens are in bloom this place deserves ALL THE STARS!
This was one of the best experiences of my.life. From the art indoors to the unbelievable outdoor landscaping. An amazing place to go alone, with family, or happy hour. Words can't describe the wonder inside to discover.
Amazing place to go on a date or take the kids. Very nice artwork, sculpture, exhibits, and outdoor paths to walk. To think it was owned privately and then given to everyone is something special. The 2nd Saturday of every month is 100% free to go and they have kids crafts that day too.
