According to recent visitors, a stop at the Oklahoma City Museum of Art is a must if you're a fan of artist Dale Chihuly. That's because this museum houses one of the largest collections of Chihuly glass in the world. The crown jewel of its collection, the Eleanor Blake Kirkpatrick Memorial Tower, isn't hard to miss – the 55-foot piece is on display in the museum's atrium. Along with its Chihuly collection, the museum boasts paintings, prints, photographs and sculptures from 19th- and 20th-century European and American artists, including Georgia O'Keeffe, Renoir and Gustave Courbet, among others.
Recent visitors were impressed with the museum's Chihuly collection, though they do concede that the museum is small. Reviewers also appreciated the on-site theater and cafe, which offers daily lunch, dinner and tea service, as well as Sunday brunch.
The Oklahoma City Museum of Art is located in downtown OKC, on Couch Drive. The museum is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., with extended hours on Thursday until 9 p.m. On Sunday, it welcomes visitors from noon to 5 p.m. Tickets cost $12 for adults and $10 for youths between the ages of 6 and 18.
