About Tulsa, OKTulsa is a city on the Arkansas River, in the U.S. state of Oklahoma. It’s known for its large collection of preserved art deco architecture. Landmarks like the Philcade and Philtower buildings reflect a 20th-century construction boom fueled by the prosperous local oil industry. The Philbrook Museum of Art is housed in an Italianate villa that was once the home of a local oil magnate.
