Wasn't sure what to expect with the renovation of the older Fred Jones Museum of Art, O.U., but the results are amazing! Galleries are contained within identical yet almost unconnected geometrically designed "tent-like" structures, inspired by the Architect from tents in the Middle Eastern deserts. The museum is a cheerful yet elegant, modern setting with wall size glass, allowing much... More

The Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art is a gem located on the campus of the University of Oklahoma. Over the years, a number of facility additions have been made to house extremely important works of painted art. Although the rotation of pieces is fairly infrequent compared to other comparable facilities across the country, the pieces are interesting and always... More

OU should be especially proud to have this jewel of a museum on its campus. Free admission (voluntary donation as you leave if you wish) makes this unusually nice. Beautiful building adds to the art on display. Changing exhibits are also fun to catch. I made this trip especially to see the Ballet Russe exhibit. There's enough to keep even... More

And the price was great! Free with a donation bucket if you are feeling rich enough when you walk in. Like all arts museums some of the work leave you in wonder and others leave you wondering. Displays and presentation very well done of course staff will be watching you in some rooms since the Monets, Van Gogh, Gauguin are... More

A review on Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art, Oklahoma City. The amazing art collection is displayed very well over the 4 floors of the museum. I loved the Greek religious art section and they have a wonderful collection of the French impressionism. The museum has a bit of everything and tours are free on Tuesdays!

Admission is free. Amazing art displayed very well over the 4 floors of the museum. I read about 1 hour toruing times by people, so we only allotted 2.5 hours of our trip. 2.5 hours weren't close to enough time for us to enjoy this museum. We will have to plan periodic return trips to really enjoy this museum more... More
