Activity Overview

The Philbrook Museum of Art is one of the most popular museums in Tulsa, Oklahoma. It is located inside Villa Philbrook, a beautiful Italian Renaissance villa surrounded by elaborate gardens that was once the home of oil pioneer Waite Phillips. In 1938, he donated the villa and gardens to the city of Tulsa for use as a cultural institution. Today, it showcases an impressive collection of artwork, including European, Native American, Modern, African, and Asian art.

Things to Do

  • Explore the fascinating Native American art collection, the Philbrook's largest collection, which features artwork and artifacts such as baskets, pottery, and jewelry.
  • View the antiquities collection, which includes a large Egyptian coffin, Greek and Roman sculptures, and Etruscan artwork.
  • Go for a walk through the gorgeous Philbrook gardens, which are full of native plants and beautiful sculptures.
