Gilcrease Museum, also known as the Thomas Gilcrease Institute of American History and Art, is a museum northwest of downtown Tulsa, Oklahoma housing the world's largest, most comprehensive collection of art of the American West, as well as a growing collection of art and artifacts from Central and South America. The museum is named for Thomas Gilcrease, an oil man and avid art collector, who began the collection. He deeded the collection, as well as the building and property, to the City of Tulsa in 1958. Since July 1, 2008, Gilcrease Museum has been managed by a public-private partnership of the City of Tulsa and the University of Tulsa. The Helmerich Center for American Research at Gilcrease Museum was added in 2014 at a cost of $14 million to provide a secure archival area where researchers can access any of the more than 100,000 books, documents, maps and unpublished materials that have been acquired by the museum.Before you head to Tulsa, plan trip itinerary details with our user-friendly Tulsa trip planner, to make sure you see all that Tulsa has to offer, including Gilcrease Museum.

They have an amazing collection. They have a bunch of art but I have to say my personal favorites were the native american collections. They were both extensive and beautiful. Sad to see this place...

This place is so great, a great place to get away from people and just take in the view. (came here because i heard Leonardo was coming)

Great museum filled with Native American relics. We spent about 2 hours inside and wandering around the gardens. My boyfriend actually learned quite a bit about his ancestors. I loved the landscaping and the different themed gardens from all the ages. Definitely a must see if you’re in Tulsa.
Loved this little museum. Was lucky to have visited when they had free admission and an outdoor concert. Definitely a must on any Tulsa visit bucket list
