A Visit to Philbrook
Today, we all loaded up the Kia and went to Tulsa to kick off the kids' Spring Break at Philbrook Art Museum. Philbrook was built in 1927 by Waite Phillips of Phillips Petroleum. In 1938, the Phillips family gave the home to the citizens of Tulsa to be used as an art museum. It holds Picassos, Rodins, Morans and other incredible works of art. The home, itself, is the main part of the museum, having been built at the height of the early oil boom. The gardens are absolutely incredible.
