The Tulsa Art Deco Museum is a one of a kind boutique museum. This museum is set in the marbled lobby of the Philcade Building which is known for the history behind it. Some said it is an art deco itself. The museum houses a rare collection of items and objets d’art which are products of Tulsa’s golden age of art deco. You can find in the museum the best collection of glassworks, advertising artworks, functional furniture, and home décor pieces. The museum provides inspiring exhibits and educational programs.
There are several self-guided window exhibits that you can enjoy at the Tulsa Art Deco Museum. Some of the permanent exhibitions in the museum are Egyptian Art Deco, Debby Kelsey Private Collection, The Changing Yearbook – William Franklin Private Collection, and Tulsa's Lost Art Deco.
You may also swing by a 1920’s gift shop which showcases items that will remind you of Tulsa’s rich heritage. There’s also the Mod’s Coffee & Crepes café where you can have hot drinks and some light meals. If you fancy buying local handicraft items, you can find several small boutiques inside an old bank off the lobby of the historic building.
The Philcade Building has a stunning art deco architecture and it was designed by Architect Leon Senter, one of Tulsa’s most renowned architects. The building has thirteen floors of office space, a luxury penthouse found at the 14th floor, and a two-story shopping arcade. Philcade was completed in 1937, and it was the first air-conditioned building in Tulsa.
The closest hotel is Courtyard by Marriott Downtown which is located less than 0.1 mile away.
