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.
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
