Philbrook Museum of Art

This vast art museum, housed in an Italian style villa, has numerous exhibits from European, American, Asian, Native American and African artists and is surrounded by acres of lush gardens.

Reviewed By Mike D - Tahlequah, Oklahoma

I love BOTH Philbrook and the Philbrook downtown museums! I am an artist and have been privileged to be able to go down into their collections for private research. Christina Burke who is the Curator of Native American Art is THE BEST! Both locations are beautiful and always have great exhibits. The main location has the most beautiful grounds! Definitely worth a visit and you will want to return.

River City Trading Post

Reviewed By T S - Idaho Falls, Idaho

There is a huge variety of booths to stroll through - antiques, hand crafted, vintage, books, furniture, clothing (new and used), etc. The shopping carts make it nice too and the staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. Plan on at least an hour and try to leave the little ones at home - not a fun outing for them!

The Cave House

The Cave House in a landmark in Tulsa. It was built in 1924, as a Chicken Restaurant. Built during prohibition, it was a place you could quench your thirst! It not only has quirky architecture, but it probably best known for its stories, full of interesting and sometimes amusing information. It is a great date, or family adventure, and as the owner I love to share it! It is best to call, or message ahead, as I do not have regular hours. Due to scheduling for private tours and groups, and because travelers request all days and times, I try to schedule according to requests as best as I can. The cost is $10.00 for ages 16yr. and older. Ages 15yr and younger are $5.00.

Too interesting not to drive by (if you are in the neighborhood). Not interesting enough to drive by (if you are not in the neighborhood). The house is true to life and has existed for decades. I drove by the house endless times to and from a work location.

Pinot's Palette Riverwalk is an upscale "Paint and Sip" studio. We are the perfect place for a Girls Night Out, Date Night, Anniversary Night, Corporate team building or a Customer Appreciation Party. We make it simple. You book the party and we do the rest. We supply EVERYTHING!

Reviewed By Oktraveler83 - Bartlesville, Oklahoma

Pinot's Palette is on the Riverwalk in Jenks. They have a variety of options to choose from. We reserved the date night package. At $45 per person you are set up with canvas, easel, apron,paints and brushes. Wine and beer are offered but not included in the package. There is also water, tea, etc. You might want to bring a snack as none are provided and space is limited. An instructor will guide you step by step through the painting. Our session was 3 hours, which seemed a little long but there are breaks through out and the music is very up temple. It's a different experience and you leave with your piece of art.

Woodward Park

Reviewed By michaela3640 - Edmond, Oklahoma

We Tulsans love a trilogy of items. The beauty of the outdoors, vibrant colors and bragging rights, Woodward park, the wedding, graduation and special event photo backdrop of Green Country provides all three in plenty.

Woodward Park is the crown jewel of the Brookside, Maple Ridge, Philbrook and Utica Square Districts. Its grounds adjoin the Tulsa Historical Society. Located primarily at 21st and Peoria, it has geography, flora and fauna and fall and spring beauty as thousands of accent flowers and plants erupt and explode in perfect symmetry. There are few walking paths but they are not needed. There are sheltered areas but most visitors are short term and drive through or take gentle stroll. It is heavily wooded with stone, rock and water accents. It is surrounded by the vintage and opulent Maple Ridge housing district withe th great Philbrook Art Museum a scant 1/2 mile away. Utica Square is a 1/2 mile to the east. The Cherry Street District is a 1/2 mile to the north. This is OLD, OLD time Tulsa. Azaleas dominate the landscape in the Spring. Roses are the transition as one walks towards the Historical Society to te south.

Having recently moved from Tulsa, I greatly miss this treasure. It is gorgeous and magical. Go, park, take a blanket, cheese, bread and some well concealed wine and enjoy.

Nice place. Very organized and set up nicely. Some pricy items but depending what you are looking for, could be just what you are looking for. Eclectic and fun.
