  • What an excellent museum - with respect to the Dust Bowl and Woody's very interesting life, this museum is second to none. Well worth the price of admission.  more »
  • I wasn't sure what to expect as I didn't know much about Woody beforehand. I found the artifacts very interesting. There are videos to watch, audio recordings to listen to, and documents to read. I le...  more »
  • On a cold winter day in January, my wife and I essentially had the place to ourselves. Their collection of Woody Guthrie’s writings and drawings was impressive, but we got the idea the museum is under...  more »

  • Wonderful living tribute to Guthrie. Exhibition gives examples of his work, and shows some of his instruments, and movie is a short retrospective of his work and influence. One wishes there was more, but overall a well designed exhibition. Includes an archive of his work, that is available for researchers in humidity and temperature stable environnent. Includes hands on elements to anchor Woody's work in proper context if history, as well as multimedia stations to explore his extensive catalogue. Backdrop panels with facsimile pages of Woody's journals are perfect backdrop for the rest of the exhibition. The temporary/visiting John Denver exhibition was also interesting, if not as extensive, nor engaging.
  • Wonderful informative museum. You could spend the better part of the day here really exploring. The interactive exhibits are really worth the trip.
  • The Woody Guthrie Museum is a treasure of Tulsa. This beautiful little gem will open your eyes to the many and varied talents of one of America’s greatest folk artists and activist. The short but informative film is a wonderful introduction of his contributions to American song, poetry, cartoons and reflections on historical times. At the time of my visit they also had a retrospective on John Denver. This museum was a revelation. #mustseeinTulsa
  • Great smaller museum. A lot of cool memorabilia and educational areas. Not 5/5 because i had a small kid and there wasn't a lot for him. Still a good time and well worth the entry. Check out Guthrie green too
  • The museum is very well done. It is self paced with many interactive exhibits. Very educational. The John Denver exhibit was an added bonus.
