This is a nice way to spend a couple of hours on a cold day. There is an exhibit downstairs that relates Tulsa's history to transportation that is very interesting. There is also a small room that talks about very early Tulsa. DON'T MISS UPSTAIRS!...More

It is refreshing to see old photographs of days gone by during the oil boom and what followed. This beautiful building is worth the trip just to experience its beauty. Is a must see for Tulsa visitors and our own Tulsa citizens.

The Junior League has partnered with the Historical Society for several functions including a monthly meeting and most recently our annual GEM Gala. It's beautiful, historical and delightful every single time.

The museum is nicely done, but could use better interpretive material for the visitor that doesn't know anything about Tulsa. There is no overview history of the city, the film wasn't working and the staff were not particularly helpful.More

Tulsa Historical Society is worth the visit! The very nice museum is located next to beautiful Woodward Park in Mid-Town Tulsa. The museum staff was very friendly, welcoming, and archetypically nerdy. The attendant made sure to personally point out many items of interest and gave...More
