I went to this museum as a school field trip, and I must say it was incredible. To the life sized mummy, the shrunken heads, discovering about the mummification process, to the beautiful paintings. This museum truly offers something for everyone. We had all age groups at our field trip to some in second grade to high schoolers, everyone found... More

I actually visited twice during this month. They had a special military exhibit going on at that time and I wanted to share the experience with others. The art that is on permanent display is intriguing and awe inspiring. I will visit again.

Note that the entry way is actually where the large green gate is- when the museum is open these two gigantic green doors will open and you will be able to see... More

Much of the time there's no admission for such a fabulous exhibit. The place is filled with artifacts from around the world. It tells the real stories about a journey from the old country to a small settlement in sacred heart . The academy was to be built there but eventually was erected in Shawnee, ok. This will be a...

One person with a vision can make a difference, and Father Gregory Gerrer of St. Gregory's University in Shawnee, OKlahoma is such a man. The father was not just a fine artist on his own (his portrait of Pope Pius X is a masterpiece....I must have spent 15 minutes in front of it) but he collected art and historical artifacts,... More

The Mebee-Gerre Museum of Art was ranked number 1. This museum is not big facility. It is easily located because the museum is located on the campus of St. Gregory’s... More
