Have visited twice in the last six months and was surprised to see that they had changed out several of the exhibits. Great place to spend an hour or two, nice art collection and a very calm environment.

I am admittedly not well-versed in art, but found the museum surprising in both the size and quality of its collection. Knowing it was on a university campus, I assumed it would small, but an hour at a brisk clip only allowed us to see...More

This is a wonderful collection of art from the Americas, Europe, Asia and Micronesia. There are paintings from some big names, like Gauguin, Renoir, and Van Gogh, as well as locally well-known Oklahoma Native American artists. My wife and I especially liked the Orthodox icon...More
