The permanent collection at The Sherwin Milller Museum of Jewish Art includes iron and bronze works from early Jewish history (think 3200 BCE), work by Israeli artists like Reuven Rubin and objects from the Holocaust. Of interest to the Oklahomans who have visited is the museum's collection of memorabilia chronicling local Jewish history.

While on the smaller side, recent visitors highly recommend visiting this museum, saying that all of the exhibits are informative and impressive. It's also a good place for a repeat visit, as the exhibits change throughout the seasons.

You'll find The Sherwin Miller Museum of Jewish Art east of the Arkansas River in south Tulsa. It is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, from noon to 5 p.m. on Saturday and from 1 to 5 p.m. on Sunday. Admission costs $6.50 for adults, $3.50 for those 21 and younger and $5.50 for those 55 and older. Visit the museum's website for more details.

The pieces inside Tulsa's Philbrook Museum of Art are constantly competing for attention with the natural splendor of the grounds. In fact, visitors can't seem to decide which they like better. You'll find Renaissance and Baroque paintings and sculptures, plus a sampling of Asian art, Native American pieces and African sculptures. In addition to well-manicured pathways and blooming environs, recent visitors said the breathtaking gardens also have a picturesque sculpture walk with 17 installations to enjoy.

Just south of Woodward Park, the Philbrook occupies the former estate of oil tycoon Waite Phillips. It's open Wednesday through Sunday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. On Fridays, the exhibits stay open until 9 p.m. General admission costs $9 for adults, $7 for seniors and is free for children 17 or younger and for college students with a valid ID from participating schools. Free, docent-led tours of the museum's permanent collections are offered daily at 2 p.m. If you'd rather take a self-guided tour, grab a map from Guest Experience at the museum's main entrance.
