The Museum is owned by The City of Tulsa but is managed by The University of Tulsa which has a proven track record of discrimination against gays and lesbians.

Hard to pick which exhibits were our favorite as they were all quite special. The Norman Rockwell was outstanding. The Native American wing well organized with some very nice pieces. Go downstairs and open the drawers!
