A City of Fine Museums


Whether you live in Tulsa or you’re just here for a visit, we have several museums for your enjoyment. The Philbrook Museum is located in a 1920’s style Italian mansion and is easily accessible in the Midtown area. You’ll not only find art of a world-class collection in this historic home, but the grounds are home to classical gardens, as well.

Close by is the Tulsa Historical Society Museum which is also in a 1920s style house and offers the Tulsa Rose Garden and Woodward Park with exhibits year round that show the culture and history of Tulsa. 

Of course we can’t forget the Gilcrease Museum just north and west of the downtown area. This museum houses an unparalleled collection of Native American art, artifacts and more. The City of Tulsa and the University of Tulsa own this museum collectively which also includes 23 acres of scenic vistas.

South of Tulsa is the Sherwin Miller Museum of Jewish Art, which houses the Southwest’s largest collection of Judaica. Many collections are here from the Jewish History and Culture exhibits. As well, you will find the Oklahoma Jewish Experience Exhibition and a Holocaust Exhibition.

Keeping up with the outer space, the Tulsa Air and Space Museum, close to the Tulsa International Airport, has the history of the aviation industry with a planetarium inside, too. Not too far away is the Tulsa Zoo & Living Museum.
