Gilcrease Museum is one of the premier museums in the United States. It house one of the best collections of Western and Southwestern Art in the world. It was great to get back there, especially with the Edgar Payne exhibit currently on display

What You'll Get


Subtlety is a hallmark of brilliant art, whether it's the hint of a smile on the Mona Lisa or the cow on a motorcycle in the background of American Gothic. Dive into the details with this Groupon.

Choose Between Two Options

  • $12 for admission for two (up to an $8 value each) and one commemorative exhibit poster (a $10 value; up to a $26 total value)
  • $24 for admission for four (up to an $8 value each) and two commemorative exhibit posters (a $20 value; up to a $52 total value)

Admission grants visitors access to the museum's exhibits of Western artwork and artifacts. Current displays include Edgar Payne: The Scenic Journey—which features rugged, impressionistic landscapes that express a reverence for vistas from the American southwest to the Swiss Alps—as well as National Geographic Greatest Photographs of the American West and its assortment of iconic cover art gleaned from the magazine's 125-year history. Additionally, Groupon customers will receive a commemorative exhibit poster to take home. Children aged 18 and younger normally gain free admission.

Although Gilcrease Museum offers discounted admission rates for seniors, students, and active-duty members of the U.S. armed forces, this Groupon still presents the best value available.

About Gilcrease Museum


Thomas Gilcrease learned to love the American West as a boy growing up in the Oklahoma Territory during the early 1900s, but it took a trip to Europe to ignite his passion for preserving and sharing the region's distinctive culture and history. Inspired by the vast displays of Old World artwork he viewed during his overseas travels, he used the wealth he amassed in Oklahoma's oil fields to assemble an immense collection of art and artifacts. This collection found its current home in 1949 when Gilcrease founded what would become the Gilcrease Museum.

The museum's exhibit halls, library shelves, and refrigerator doors brim with historically and culturally significant pieces, including more than 10,000 Western American artworks by nationally renowned painters and sculptors, 100,000 rare books, maps, and manuscripts, and 250,000 Native American artifacts. Although exhibits change throughout the year, they tend to explore the impact of westward expansion while also celebrating the region's natural beauty and honoring its roots in Native American culture.

Beyond its walls, the Gilcrease Museum features 23 acres of themed gardens, which embrace landscaping design and agricultural practices from the pre-Columbian, Colonial, and Victorian eras, among others. These gardens allow visitors to interact with displays that are simultaneously historical and alive, serving as a symbolic reminder of western America's cultural growth and development.
