|About these ratings|
Tulsa's visitors say the Gilcrease Museum is one of the best spots to see artwork inspired by the American West. Some of the artists with works featured here include Frederic Remington, Olaf Seltzer and Charles Banks Wilson. There are also contributions from Daniel Chester French, John James Audubon and N.C. Wyeth. Outside are 11 themed gardens: Byron and Audray Boone Garden, the Pioneer Garden and the Pre-Colombian Garden, to name a few.
Some say you should study the museum's website extensively before dropping by, however. The layout can be confusing and since the exhibits are spread out over 460 acres, you could easily lose precious time.
The Gilcrease is northwest of downtown, appropriately located on Gilcrease Museum Road. It's open Tuesday through Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission costs between $5 and $8, depending on age. Visit the museum's official website for more information.
