  • No matter what kind of art you are looking for the odds are at some point the Philbrook will have it. They offer a great opportunity to learn and share with your friends and family. Kid get in free which is awesome. The garden is beautiful and well kept. They also have a restaurant on site, though I have not had the opportunity to try it.
  • Wow this was an amazing and beautiful museum. The art was wonderful, the gardens were magnificent. Good parking, good price. They had this really great drawing activity so we could relax outside. The even let us keep the supplies last when they were packing up, we just had to turn it in to the front. I will definitely go back if I am ever in Tulsa again. It was gorgeous, the best art museum I've ever been to.
  • A very nice museum housed in a mansion built ( I think ) in the early 1900s. Many nice paintings and artifacts. They also serve brunch which is very good but don't forget to bring your credit card.
  • Such a wonderful place with such history. Oh and wonderful art work. Its really more then just a museum! check them out they have classes and movies and thing for the kids...
  • Elegant place. Dress nice or you'll be under dressed. The food is so good. The gift shop is large and nice. The grounds inside and out are spacious and beautiful. It's a beautiful luxurious mansion that I don't mind staying a half a day in. Great place for kids their is a lot of walking and exploring they can do.
