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!
