The Weltzenhoffer collection at this museum is the crown jewel. It is the largest and most valuable ($50 million) collection of Impressionist art ever donated to a university. They have it on display exactly as the Weltzenhoffers did at their home. There are four or...More

Famous pieces by VERY famous artists. You won't believe that it's all here in Norman. These are pieces that I would expect to see in New York. I have been back several times. 3 floors of amazing art and it's free.

This is part of the University of Oklahoma. It is rich with Indian art and has a great small collection of Impressionism. Entrance is by one's own donation. A museum not to be missed.
