This is always a treat to go to the Philbrook, but I was a little saddened to see the Gardens looking a little shabby. I realize its beginnings of Winter but it still needs some attending to especially in the side bed areas.

I have visited this museum many times over the last 30 + years. Years ago I visited with my children and groups of children. Now I enjoy an outing with friends and eating in the fine restaurant. The gardens are outstanding throughout the year, but especially when in bloom. There are docents who can guide you, and answer questions. I... More

My son is studying Architecture at OSU and was required to visit for a school project during his Thanksgiving break. This place was beautiful. The entry was decorated for Christmas and was breathtaking. I especially loved all of the gingerbread houses that were out. What a super fun day!

It appears the garden/grounds is what might be remarkable about this museum. We didn't get to see the gardens as a movie was being filmed.

While the art is not my favorite type of art it is still stunning to see. Easy to get around the grounds around the place are just amazing

Took my 17 year old daughter, she was so excited, said it reminded of the Met in NYC, only smaller and with a wonderful garden and grounds, she can't stop talking about how wonderful it was and how much she enjoyed.

The place is so neat and full of art and culture. The garden was awesome with lots of trees of autumn changing from green to reds and yellows. Spacious and elegant. There was a scheduled lighting when we went but was unable to wait for it because we have to catch a flight home, too bad. It is a must... More

This is a great art museum, with beautiful grounds and landscaping. I specifically love the art eras they have on display. Also the special pop up events they hold. Great place to take older kids, and or any adult!

We went to the Philbrook for a fundraiser for the museum. Having been there many times before, I knew it would be a great experience. The museum is well laid out and beautiful. The gardens were decorated for Christmas with lights everywhere. It's always well run and a great place to take kids to instill an appreciation of art (mine... More
