About the Gilcrease Gardens

The Gilcrease Gardens are open daily from 6:00am to 11:00pm. Stuart Park is closed during Gilcrease Museum construction.

The themed gardens at Gilcrease have been developed on 23 of the museum’s 460 acres.

Special care of the grounds began with the museum’s founder, Thomas Gilcrease, who encouraged the growth of native plants and introduced numerous exotic plants, including the southern magnolia. The gardens consist of Pre-Columbian, Pioneer, Colonial, Victorian, and rock gardens, all of which are perfect for exploration in all seasons.

Today, The University of Tulsa maintains these magnificent grounds as part of this agreement with the City of Tulsa to manage the Museum’s operations. Nestled in the Osage Hills, the historic theme gardens are a wonderful component of the total experience of visiting Gilcrease museum.
