  • 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 »

  • I came here right after the disastrous election in November 2016. Just the salve I needed. Woody is one of my heroes, and I was excited to see this place. I was not disappointed. They did a wonderful job of documenting all the Woody history and you could spend days in there going through recordings, readings, drawings, and going through the chronology of his life and his works. He truly was an amazing soul who was ahead of his time. I loved it so much, we came through Oklahoma again last week on a road trip, and I had to share this place with my sister. She was only disappointed that we didn't have more time to spend there. A must see even if you're not a huge Woody fan. (You will be after spending time here!)
  • It's an easy place to see in an hour. But the best part was the concert by Jake Allen that evening. What a talent!! There's also many places to eat near by.
  • 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.
  • This is a nice little gem in the heart of downtown Tulsa. I visited specifically for the John Denver exhibit, which was there on loan for a short time. However, I also liked the Woody Guthrie exhibit as well, which gives a good history of his life and times.
  • We were reminded, or made aware, of the genuine humanity of this incredibly talented citizen, champion of people and artist of so many facets. Don't hardly make 'em like that anymore.
