The Thomas Gil­crease In­sti­tute of Amer­ica His­tory and Art, com­monly known as Gil­crease Mu­seum, has a col­lec­tion of Amer­i­can art and ar­ti­facts as vast as the Amer­i­can ex­pe­ri­ence it­self, in­clud­ing an un­par­al­leled col­lec­tion of Na­tive Amer­i­can art and ma­te­rial. The Helmerich Cen­ter for Amer­i­can Re­search on the mu­seum’s cam­pus houses a vast archival col­lec­tion of ma­te­rial re­lated to the his­tory of North Amer­ica Lo­cated five min­utes from down­town Tulsa, the Gil­crease Mu­seum is nes­tled on 460 acres in the Osage Hills and in­cludes 23 acres of themed gar­dens open to the pub­lic for tours. With the 400,000-item col­lec­tion, trav­el­ing ex­hi­bi­tions, pro­grams and ed­u­ca­tion stu­dios, there is some­thing for ev­ery­one.

“One of the rea­sons Thomas Gil­crease amassed the largest col­lec­tion of Amer­i­cana in the world was be­cause he wanted peo­ple to un­der­stand the Amer­i­can ex­pe­ri­ence. In the months ahead, we are ex­cited to host a di­verse of­fer­ing of ex­hi­bi­tions to do just that.” —Su­san Neal, ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor, Gil­crease Mu­seum
