This vast art museum, housed in an Italian style villa, has numerous exhibits from European, American, Asian, Native American and African artists and is surrounded by acres of lush gardens.

Reviewed By Mike D - Tahlequah, Oklahoma

I love BOTH Philbrook and the Philbrook downtown museums! I am an artist and have been privileged to be able to go down into their collections for private research. Christina Burke who is the Curator of Native American Art is THE BEST! Both locations are beautiful and always have great exhibits. The main location has the most beautiful grounds! Definitely worth a visit and you will want to return.

CrossTimbers Marina

Located just 25 minutes from downtown Tulsa, CrossTimbers Marina on Skiatook Lake is the area's preferred choice for quality, convenience, and fun. The lake's water quality is unequaled in NE Oklahoma, and its 168 miles of unspoiled shoreline and over 10,000 acres of water are yours to explore.

Reviewed By Coach96 - Tulsa, Oklahoma

We rented a pontoon and tubes to go out on Lake Skiatook for our son's Birthday. We had an awesome time. We also brought our lab and she enjoyed jumping in the lake and hanging out on the pontoon. The kids loved tubing. It was a great day spent at the lake. They also have cabins and a restaurant. We did not use either of these but they did look nice. We have stayed at other cabins on this lake in the past but wasn't impressed with those, next time we will try Cross Timbers cabins, they looked nicer.

Gilcrease Museum

The world's largest collection of art from the American West is housed at this museum, which is also well stocked with Native American artifacts and artwork. Thematic gardens reflect the gardening styles of different time periods.

Reviewed By MissMem - Memphis

Gilcrease is an excellent museum with an amazing collection of Native American works. The grounds are very special as well. We admired objects of art for over two hours and could easily have stayed longer.

The Cave House

The Cave House in a landmark in Tulsa. It was built in 1924, as a Chicken Restaurant. Built during prohibition, it was a place you could quench your thirst! It not only has quirky architecture, but it probably best known for its stories, full of interesting and sometimes amusing information. It is a great date, or family adventure, and as the owner I love to share it! It is best to call, or message ahead, as I do not have regular hours. Due to scheduling for private tours and groups, and because travelers request all days and times, I try to schedule according to requests as best as I can. The cost is $10.00 for ages 16yr. and older. Ages 15yr and younger are $5.00.

Reviewed By Richard H - Kansas City, Missouri

Too interesting not to drive by (if you are in the neighborhood). Not interesting enough to drive by (if you are not in the neighborhood). The house is true to life and has existed for decades. I drove by the house endless times to and from a work location.

Skiatook Museum

Reviewed By suzie j

This museum will surprise you. It is fairly large for a small town. There are several rooms with great historical and "period" pieces. They have rooms devoted to the military, quilting, crystal/china, American Indian objects, period clothing, photographs, and much more. They also have actual old newspapers which are delightful to read. I got lost in 1954! Plan to spend anywhere from 30 minutes to a hour or two, depending on how any newspapers you read :) The gentleman that assisted me was a volunteer (thank you Don Butler) who was also knowledgeable about Skiatook's history. Nice thing to do after lunching at Luigi's Italian Restaurant....

Woody Guthrie Center

Reviewed By Tori M - Nashville, Tennessee

This small museum is packed full of all things Woody Guthrie. I'll admit, I didn't know much about him other than "This Land Is Your Land." And that's definitely prominently highlighted. But he was also an artist, poet, and humanitarian. The archives located here are regularly rotated, highlighting timely and relevant pieces. There also is an area for traveling exhibits - we were lucky to view the John Denver exhibit on loan from the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles. It was also very well done.
There are multiple interactive technology areas, listening areas, a place to write your own verse to a song, and more. It's a small museum, but we spent a good 2 and a half hours seeing it all. We didn't feel rushed, or crowded, or bored. There also is a short movie that sets the stage and introduces Woody Guthrie; it's very well done, and must be seen!
The only 'complaint' I would have is the real lack of a gift shop area. There are some shirts, a couple books, and that's about all, along one wall when you come in.
Oh and I must give a shout out to Sam, the gentleman who was working the front desk, selling tickets, running the gift shop, and basically being a one man cheerleader for the museum. He was wonderful!
It's all very well done, very informational and educational, and timely.

Woodward Park

Reviewed By michaela3640 - Edmond, Oklahoma

We Tulsans love a trilogy of items. The beauty of the outdoors, vibrant colors and bragging rights, Woodward park, the wedding, graduation and special event photo backdrop of Green Country provides all three in plenty.

Woodward Park is the crown jewel of the Brookside, Maple Ridge, Philbrook and Utica Square Districts. Its grounds adjoin the Tulsa Historical Society. Located primarily at 21st and Peoria, it has geography, flora and fauna and fall and spring beauty as thousands of accent flowers and plants erupt and explode in perfect symmetry. There are few walking paths but they are not needed. There are sheltered areas but most visitors are short term and drive through or take gentle stroll. It is heavily wooded with stone, rock and water accents. It is surrounded by the vintage and opulent Maple Ridge housing district withe th great Philbrook Art Museum a scant 1/2 mile away. Utica Square is a 1/2 mile to the east. The Cherry Street District is a 1/2 mile to the north. This is OLD, OLD time Tulsa. Azaleas dominate the landscape in the Spring. Roses are the transition as one walks towards the Historical Society to te south.

Having recently moved from Tulsa, I greatly miss this treasure. It is gorgeous and magical. Go, park, take a blanket, cheese, bread and some well concealed wine and enjoy.

Tulsa Performing Arts Center

Complex of five theaters accommodates a variety of ballet, opera, symphony, plays, meetings, lectures and films.

Reviewed By Ron B - Broken Arrow, Oklahoma

The Tulsa PAC is an excellent place to watch a play or listen to a music concert. The acoustics are the best of any place in Tulsa. The seats are comfortable and the facility is easy to leave as there are plenty of exits. You can get refreshments at a stand on the bottom floor beside the main entrance. Perhaps the only minor complaint I may have is that there is no center isle in the main hall (Chapman). If you are unlucky enough to have to leave one of the seats in the center, you have to crawl over a lot of people to get to an isle at the side.
