Founded in 1919, the Mabee-Gerrer Museum of Art is one of the oldest museums in the state of Oklahoma. Father Gregory Gerrer, for whom the museum is named, was a Benedictine monk of considerable artistic talent. During Father Gerrer's travels to Europe, Africa and South America, he collected objects of artistic and ethnological value.

The museum's permanent collections include Egyptian, Greek and Roman objects; art from the Renaissance through the early 20th century; and large holdings of Native American African/Oceanic and Eastern cultural artifacts. In addition, the museum offers exciting special exhibitions throughout the year.

  • Such a great museum. Friendly, knowledgeable staff. Beautiful art pieces and collections.
  • For the size of the museum, it is FULL of great pieces both historic and modern. They also have an area for the kids to make their own art and learn something. When my kids and I went, they had prisms there that they could shine light through.
  • This is an excellent museum that I've loved coming to since being a kid. Remember the mummy very well. The Bouguereau paintings are gorgeous and always keep me coming back.
