PLEASE CHECK YOUR CONCEALED WEAPONS AT THE FRONT DESK


Known more for its well-curated gardens thank its collection, the Philbrook Museum in Tulsa, contains some notable exceptions, including the amusing diptych of martyrs below.  Both the museum and art collection once belonged to oil magnate and founder of Phillips Oil, Waite Phillips.  Before you plan your next visit, please be advised: no handguns permitted!  Just in case you forget, a helpful reminder greets you on the front door.  


Organ in the closet?
