The Museum is owned by The City of Tulsa but is managed by The University of Tulsa which has a proven track record of discrimination against gays and lesbians.

Hard to pick which exhibits were our favorite as they were all quite special. The Norman Rockwell was outstanding. The Native American wing well organized with some very nice pieces. Go downstairs and open the drawers!

Have been here several times. Very beautiful museum and grounds and always have great exhibits. The staff is the BEST. I was a participant/vendor at their "Cherokee Day" they had last fall and the staff was awesome. Can't wait to return!
