DO NOT TOUCH ANYTHING! Saturday at Philbrook Museum.

In all my time living in Tulsa I had yet to visit any of its museums.  Shocked? I can’t say that I am, lol but I was a little disappointed in myself.  Art really is subjective. What someone might look at in astonishment, someone else might look at and be totally confused. I don’t have a certain period of artwork that I prefer but that may change one day. The Philbrook Museum is located at 2727 s. Rockford Rd and is open Tuesday through Sunday from 10am-5pm. Every 2nd weekend of the month the museum has free admission. Free is such a magical word. Of course I stopped by on a free day. I will mention later why this was a bad idea.

You can’t tell from my photos but there were children running around everywhere.  Anytime I walked into a room I could count the seconds before I would hear “Don’t touch anything!”…turn around and a small herd of children would be piling into the room behind me.  The reason for this is the museum hosts children art classes on this same free entrance Saturdays.

This was a strong art piece. My camera did not do it justice.

I enjoyed my first trip to the Philbrook Museum.  I’m hoping to return some time in the spring and more than likely on a day that I have to pay admission.

There is also a Philbrook Museum downtown located at 116 e. M.B. Brady St.. The museum is open Wednesday – Sat 12-7pm and on Sun 12-5pm.

Admission is $9. For more information visit the museum website at http://www.philbrook.org
