Admission

Introducing: Timed Ticketing

The Philbrook Gardens will reopen to Members on June 6 and to the Public on June 17 with key changes in place to safeguard against the spread of COVID-19. Advance, date-specific, timed-entry tickets will be required, to limit lines and crowds. Entry times will be available every half hour, until sold out. The final entry time will be one hour before close. Tickets will be available online and by phone beginning May 27 at 9am. To reserve a ticket by phone, call us 918-748-5300 during regular operating hours.

Member Mornings (Philbrook Members only): An advance timed entry ticket is recommended to guarantee speedy entry. If you arrive without a ticket between the hours of 7am and 9am and capacity allows, you may be admitted without an advance ticket. If we have reached capacity, you will not be admitted and will have to reserve a ticket for the next entry time and wait in your vehicle or leave and return at your assigned entry time.
