Is the Museum open?

On August, 9, 2019, Danny Boy O’Connor, C. Thomas Howell and S.E. Hinton joined media, city and state government officials, volunteers and VIP fans to cut the ribbon that officially opened The Outsiders House Museum.

Where is the museum located?

The museum is located at 731 N. St. Louis, Tulsa.

What are the museum’s operating hours?

One of the things that makes The Outsiders House Museum unique is the fact that it is an actual house – not a movie set – located in a residential neighborhood. City of Tulsa officials currently allow tours of the museum during weekends only. Tickets to visit the museum may be easily purchased on our website. Visits are scheduled at specific time slots on Saturdays and Sundays.  Follow us on social media and check back here for updates about any changes in hours and special events.

How do I purchase tickets for a tour?

Tour tickets are available for purchase.  There are a limited number of tickets available for each scheduled tour. Choose the availability that works for your schedule. Ticket holders enjoy a guided bus tour that visits various filming locations from The Outsiders, which were specially selected by Danny Boy O’Connor, and feature audio/video clips seen on a HD monitor to augment the live tour guide narration.  Guests will then arrive at The Outsiders House Museum, where you will be invited inside the historic Curtis Brothers home, to view an extensive collection of memorabilia from both the Coppola film and the Hinton novel. Restrooms, refreshments, and gift shop are all located in The General Store at the museum.

Can I just buy a ticket to go inside the museum?

No. Tickets include the bus tour and museum and cannot be purchased separately

Where do I park? Where do I get on and off the tour bus?

Parking is available at The Hyatt Regency, 100 E. 2nd St., Downtown Tulsa, 94104. The bus departs promptly from The Hyatt Regency.  When your museum visit ends, the tour bus will depart from the museum, and return you to The Hyatt Regency. There is no additional charge for the bus.

Is it possible to schedule a field trip to the museum? Is there a cost?

Schools and teachers who are interested in scheduling a field trip to the museum may contact for information about scheduling a tour. There is currently a discounted price for school field trips. Ideally, we hope to eventually have a low-cost or no cost program in place.  The Outsiders House Museum is working to secure sponsorship or grant funding that will make it affordable for all students to experience the museum.
