I came here for a Sunday afternoon visit. Amazing collection of artwork housed in a really modern, clean chic environment. Very relaxed atmosphere and the staff really helpful and friendly. If your into your photography this probably isn't your place though as there are only a couple f things you can take pics of and no flash allowed. It was... More

My husband and I haven't been to Gilcrease since we were in school. That has been "a few years" our grandchildren can tell you! I was amazed how much it has grown and excellent quality. As a Cherokee Indian who was not raised in my culture, it was very interesting.

This is a first rate museum of American Indian and western art. There paintings and bronzes are fantastic along with there artifacts. I personally could spend hours looking through the display cases in the lower level. In the spring there azaleas are most beautiful. If you haven't visited you should plan an afternoon there.

Gilcrease can hold it's own against many of the larger metroplex museums across the midwest. Their Native American art and sculpture collection is one of the finest you will see anywhere. They have a vast archive and continually bring out many of their collection pieces for viewing so when you attend one day, it may be an entirely different collection... More

The museum is an unexpected view of western art. The collection is beautiful and varied and attractive to a contemporary point of view. And the view from the site is also worth the time. Unique and beautiful

Whether you are a native Oklahoman or a visitor to the state, you will learn about and experience, through art, the West and Native American culture unlike any place in the country. First impressions are often right and when you walk through the entrance doors you will find a beautiful, bright and very appealing space. The whole museum is done... More

Gilcrease is a wonderful museum. It has an extensive collection of impressive and important American art. Art with a focus on the American West is the main focus of the museum's collection there are frequent presentations of other areas of interest. The museum is a beautiful building and the grounds offer a magnificent vista of the Osage Hills. The restaurant... More

The items on permanent display are always rewarding, such as the amazing western landscape paintings by Thomas Moran. But their temporary exhibits can be very uplifting also. In particular, the wood carvings by Willard Stone, personally acquired by Thomas Gilcrease from the sculptor, are amazing, particularly since one of Stone's arms was partially disabled. The chocolate exhibit educated visitors on... More
