This visible storage area is an interactive collections research facility, providing access to thousands of objects relating to the early history of the Americas.

The grounds of the Gilcrease Museum match the artistry within as 11 themed gardens have been developed on 23 of the museum's 460 acres. Garden tours are available to make the most out of your time on the Gilcrease's beautiful grounds.

The Gilcrease Museum is also reported to be haunted by a very famous former citizen, Thomas Gilcrease. It is said that Mr. Gilcrease often makes rounds of his home admiring the artwork. He has also been spotted outside in the gardens along with several small Native American children. The museum is also rumored to have a very high turnover rate, especially for nighttime guards.
