Breathtaking are the views atop this hill where the museum, and former home of Thomas Gilcrease and his family lived. The Gilcrease family house still stands today. This incredibly cared for, and preserved estate is not only where the family lived, but the final resting place of the immediate family. The grounds of the museum are situated and surrounded by thick, lush, beautifully landscaped gardens, beautiful trees, complete with grassy areas, sculptures scattered throughout the property. For the enjoyment of these gardens and the surroundings outside of the museum, park benches are pristinely located in the exact perfect spot. Benches which offer the visitor the opportunity to sit quietly soaking in the scenery where the only sounds are the birds singing, crickets chirping, or the occasional croaking frog. The grounds are the perfect place to become lost within the natural beauty of an estate of a former era.
