Small temporary gallery exhibits and a great permanent gallery highlighting the Jewish community in Oklahoma. Excellent exhibits explain Jewish symbols, heritage, holidays, etc. Located on an amazing campus with other Jewish organizations.

Small museum of history with artifacts back to 1700s as well as cultural history, orthodox Jewish life and 613 rules. I was saddened to read that upon death, Jews believe the soul is "confused" and hangs around the body. There is a small impressive area of art as well. Everything was excellent and I really enjoyed it as a Biblical... More

Great place to visit. So much amazing history in these walls. Historical, as well as cultural. Holocaust area had a tour in it, and I didn't get a chance to get in the room, but could see from the entryway, that it contained a lot of information on the event. Tour Guide was covering information from early 1900s through the... More

The Sherwin Miller museum of Jewish Art is well worth the visit. The museum has items that are quite unique as well as the traditional items we see in Jewish museums. It's small and well crafted, and really informative as I didn't realize that some of the comic books were done by Jewish writers. Some beautiful artifacts.

The museum is small, but well worth the visit. I was truly impressed with the artifacts and history. Usually they have a new additional display every few months. It is great.

My heart goes out to the Jewish people and this museum brings home the devastation of the holocaust. But the museum is not just about that it gives wonderful information about the Jewish religion and the things that surround it. The artifacts are well displayed and it is easy to get around in. There are elevators for those who need... More

This is definitely one of Tulsa's best museums. It had a great exhibit showing the history of not only the Holocaust, but racial tensions in the US and specifically in and around Tulsa. They discussed issues ranging from the KKK to modern modern-day issues affecting Jewish and other minority groups in America. Nothing in their presentation seemed to me to... More

The Sherwin Miller Museum is one of Tulsa's overlooked gem. Not large but excellent. Two floors, one with general Jewish art, one with special exhibits. The stained glass windows when you enter is enough, but don't stop there. You will be pleased you included this museum in your tour of Tulsa art..
