Loved it.

And the price was great! Free with a donation bucket if you are feeling rich enough when you walk in. Like all arts museums some of the work leave you in wonder and others leave... read more

And the price was great! Free with a donation bucket if you are feeling rich enough when you walk in. Like all arts museums some of the work leave you in wonder and others leave you wondering. Displays and presentation very well done of course staff will be watching you in some rooms since the Monets, Van Gogh, Gauguin are... More

A review on Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art, Oklahoma City. The amazing art collection is displayed very well over the 4 floors of the museum. I loved the Greek religious art section and they have a wonderful collection of the French impressionism. The museum has a bit of everything and tours are free on Tuesdays!

Admission is free. Amazing art displayed very well over the 4 floors of the museum. I read about 1 hour toruing times by people, so we only allotted 2.5 hours of our trip. 2.5 hours weren't close to enough time for us to enjoy this museum. We will have to plan periodic return trips to really enjoy this museum more... More

The museum has a little of everything but a small but first class Impressionist collection but unsurprisingly has a great southwestern art collection. Tours are available and it is free on Tuesday.

We did not know what to expect at the Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art on the OU campus in Norman, but immediately we realized it is a first-rate, world-class museum and, more importantly, it presents its art VERY well, which some better known museums do NOT do. For instance, the purple walls in the area featuring the Greek religious... More

My husband and I visited this museum in the recommendation of a friend. He said it was free, and was part of the University of Oklahoma. I wasn't expecting much based on that. However, I was totally surprised at the quality and variety of the collection. It was definitely a great way to spend a hot summer afternoon. Our favorite... More

You should devote at least one hour of your trip to Norman to visit this wonderful museum located right on the University of Oklahoma campus. There are excellent pieces of art from a variety of styles and some very famous painters. Don't miss the unbelievably beautiful pieces done in glass. Enjoy!
