About Philbrook Museum of Art
One of Tulsa's top destinations of any kind, Philbrook is a modern art museum for the whole family.
Oilman Waite Phillips donated the 72-room mansion and its surrounding 23 acres of grounds—then his private residence—to the city of Tulsa in 1938. It's served Tulsa as an art museum ever since, making great strides in recent years to cater to younger and more diverse audiences by expanding its programming. In a given week visitors may find garden tours, movie screenings, workshops with local artists or even a burger night.
The result is a more social museum experience that still takes its art quite seriously. Visitors can spend hours exploring Philbrook's permanent collection—which includes some of the original Italian Renaissance pieces that Phillips donated with the villa as well as a stunning Kehinde Wiley portrait installed in 2017—or its modern exhibition series, which has recently shown work by Andy Warhol and Pakistani artist Anila Quayyum Agha.
