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

The museum has a little of everything but a small but first class Impressionist collection but unsurprisingly has a great southwestern art collection. Tours are available and it is free on Tuesday.

We did not know what to expect at the Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art on the OU campus in Norman, but immediately we realized it is a first-rate, world-class museum and, more importantly, it presents its art VERY well, which some better known museums do NOT do. For instance, the purple walls in the area featuring the Greek religious... More

My husband and I visited this museum in the recommendation of a friend. He said it was free, and was part of the University of Oklahoma. I wasn't expecting much based on that. However, I was totally surprised at the quality and variety of the collection. It was definitely a great way to spend a hot summer afternoon. Our favorite... More

You should devote at least one hour of your trip to Norman to visit this wonderful museum located right on the University of Oklahoma campus. There are excellent pieces of art from a variety of styles and some very famous painters. Don't miss the unbelievably beautiful pieces done in glass. Enjoy!

Excellent museum. Very good pieces, easy flow, things just make sense here. Well done. Definitely worth a visit or two, and the price is right - free! Educational classes for the children too. I live in a big city and this museum gives the big city museums a run for their money.

This art museum is packed with classics to modern works. This is just the right size - not overwhelming. It's well laid out and well kept. This gem is nestled on the OU Campus and has free admission.

I enjoyed my visit to the museum. We went one day during lunch for a live music performance. Walked around the museum a bit and it was great.

We had never been to this museum but I saw in the newspaper that this temporar exhibit of busts of Roman Emperors was going to be on display. We were going through OK City on our way to visit family so we decided to stop in and view the temporary and permanent exhibits. It's a really nice museum, not too... More
