  • 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.
  • WORLD CLASS. A must see when in Tulsa. It is easy to find and get to. Plan on spending time here. Lots of eye candy to make you happy. The staff is friendly. The facility is clean and bright. I do not know anyone in Tulsa that has 1 bad thing to say about the Philbrook Museum.
  • We loved the architecture and mansion as much as the art. We will be back in the spring so that we can tour the gardens and grounds, and the enjoy the best brunch ever. Thanks for getting us in as walk ins. A truly special place.
  • Philbrook Museum has been a major influence on my appreciation of art ever since I first visited for a field trip in Middle school. Their collection ranges from classical frescos that capture Biblical tales and the martyrdom of saints to contemporary pieces that push the very definition of art. As of this writing, several pieces from their "hidden" collection is on display- pieces that don't exactly "fit" to be on display regularly. I highly recommend checking out this particular exhibit, as some of these works may not be seen again for some time.
  • Go in the warmer months so you can enjoy the outdoor garden! I really have loved the different art series this place has brought over the years.
