The exhibits and manner of display are first-rate, but museum guards move with the viewer of the art, always observing them as they move from gallery to gallery. We came here less than a month after spending five weeks in Pairs and Amsterdam, enjoying the...More

The museum used to underemphasize its collection purchased from the U.S. State Department, which included great examples of early 20th century art, and to overemphasize its Weitenhoffer Collection, which consisted of sometimes second rate art by first rate Impressionists.

The Weltzenhoffer collection at this museum is the crown jewel. It is the largest and most valuable ($50 million) collection of Impressionist art ever donated to a university. They have it on display exactly as the Weltzenhoffers did at their home. There are four or...More

Famous pieces by VERY famous artists. You won't believe that it's all here in Norman. These are pieces that I would expect to see in New York. I have been back several times. 3 floors of amazing art and it's free.

Tasteful museum on the OU campus, free to the public. There are some pieces by artists you'll know (I remember a Remington and a Hopper), but for the most part it's devoted to artists from Oklahoma, with a good sampling of Native American artists. Also...More

This is part of the University of Oklahoma. It is rich with Indian art and has a great small collection of Impressionism. Entrance is by one's own donation. A museum not to be missed.
