Oklahoma City Museum of Art
This modern art museum has more than 3,000 works from 19th- and 20th-century American artists. The highlight is a gallery that focuses on modern American art from the 1950s and 1960s, which includes work by Ellsworth Kelly, Richard Diebenkorn and Robert Indiana. This art museum attracts wonderful traveling exhibits, so call if you are in town to see what is new at the museum. Guided tours are available for groups over 10 with two weeks notice.
We were amazed at the beauty of the Chihuly exhibit. It is absolutely breathtaking. Dale Chihuly is an incredible talent. This is an exhibit we would reccomend to anyone visiting OKC.
We also visited the National Cowboy Hall of Fame and Western Heritage Museum and the OKC National Memorial. All were very worthwhile and memorable.

A nice bit of culture in an otherwise bland city. Be sure and check out the usually excellent temporary exhibitions, art-house movies and the outstanding cafe. The permanent collection is well worth seeing but don't expect the types of masterworks in the top museums. I like the new building and location that shows that the museum is making significant strides. One more thing, be sure and indulge in the rooftop bar on Thursday nights during the warm season. The view is great.
The Dale Chihuly exhibit is a 'must see' for anyone - whether you are into art or not, its a phenomenal exhibit that anyone can enjoy, young or old...and I think the OKC Art museum is an overall great place to see some real treasures...this is not a stuffy old museum, this is an OKC hot spot!
The Oklahoma Museum of Art is a must for anyone visiting the downtown area. The museum showpiece is the beautiful glass sculpture by Dale Chihuly that graces the entry. OMA is the home of the largest Chihuly collection in the world.
The museum also features a great gift shop and the Museum Cafe offers a wonderful menu in a relaxing atmosphere.
