Western Art + Chocolate

This is the place to see Western Art. The temporary exhibit on chocolate was worth the trip all by itself.

We just love it when guest's come to town and we can take them to this museum. It really shows what the west looked like of 100 years ago. We can go back time and time again and find something new each time

We loved the Gilcrease Museum and spent the entire day there among the Indian pots, rugs, headdresses, artwork, and carvings. And with the Western paintings and sculptures and a special exhibit on ancient people of West Mexico. It has a lovely restaurant with a view of the grounds. There are lots of different themed gardens so you might want to... More

It is amazing to see some of the handy work people before have made. The History of Chocolate was on display and walking from room to room you could actually smell chocolate! Going downstairs and opening the many drawers of display items was fun. You get to experience a surprise when you open each drawer of the uniqueness of the... More

It was our second visit here and we took the docent tour. Dick shared some great stories about the art and our visit was a highlight of our Tulsa trip.

The museum is clean and spacious with wonderful paintings and sculptures.The educational center is very "hands on" although not geared towards teens! The restaurant has a good menu and is waitress service... More

Too bad the new Southwest section wasn't open and they have devoted a lot of space to a chocolate display. Those were very disappointing. Nevertheless, the Morans, Bierstats, Remington's and Russell's were wonderful. Wish they had more of their Taos Artist Society works out. But still good.
