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.

Sapulpa historical museum

Reviewed By Penny F - Fayetteville, Georgia

Museum was well laid out and easy to maneuver around in. It has 3 floors with an elevator. The staff were wonderful and took their time showing the items. They had several items that I had not seen before. You will enjoy this old town museum. We spent about 1 1/2 Hour. We found this while looking for ghost signs. Which this town has many..

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!

Didn't even know this place was around, till I was told that Chip Foose had a car on display here... Stopped in, paid the 5 bucks and had a great time looking at some cool cars.. Well worth the money.. Only drawback is they need just a tad better lighting in the east end.. But it's an old building what do you expect

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.

If you are traveling west from Sapulpa you will not want to miss this antique bridge on Route 66. Just a few miles west of Sapulpa you will find the bridge as well as 3.5 miles of the original route 66 highway. You will be amazed at how narrow not only the bridge is but the old route 66 highway.

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.
