Philbrook Museum

The grounds and gardens of the Philbrook Museum in Tulsa, Oklahoma, are just as impressive as the exhibits the museum displays. If you are going to visit there, give yourself the treat of a stroll on the beautifully landscaped acres surrounding the "Villa Philbrook", as it was originally called. A nice way to break up your experience, is to relax with a delicious lunch in their restaurant that looks out over the water features, between your time on the inside and time on the outside. Since the estate was originally a residence, it remains surrounded by a neighborhood of private homes (quite nice ones, of course), so don't expect a lot of big flashing neon signs or billboards pointing out the location to the museum. When I say it is a "hidden treasure", that is not an exaggeration. But it is definitely a treasure hunt worth the effort!
