I don't know what I expected, but it wasn't what I found. Friends of mine had visited here, and told me about the animals and beautiful landscapes - and those things are pretty cool. I was told that Woolaroc also had a museum, but it wasn't the first thing they mentioned. I'm here to report that Woolaroc is an art... More

One of the very best Western Art Museums we have been to. Great grounds and outdoor spaces. Knowledgeable docents. All well maintained. Pack a lunch and plan on spending at least 4 hours. Frank Phillips has done the public and grand service by opening this special place to the public.

I love this place with the grassy small hills filled with sandstone and oak trees and a variety of animals.....buffalo, too, of course.....along the drive from the entrance to the museum. The lake, museum, lodge, trails, views are are wonderful! I loved the little villages in the museum as a child as well as the shrunken heads! So fascinating to... More

I can't believe it took me so long to visit Woolaroc. I have known of it for well over a decade, but never managed to visit until recently. It's much more than I expected, and I really enjoyed it. It's also really good for kids. I was surprised the items in the gift shop seemed very reasonably priced (usually gift... More

Please Go! There is so much to see here, and they have great food, so don't bring a picnic, unless that's what you want to do. First you can drive a loop and see all kinds of animals, buffalo, long horns, and exotics. Then you can visit a mount man camp, throw tomahawk, fire glint guns, shoot arrows with a... More

Love the museum, grounds, as well as F. Phillips home/cottage. Great setting. Avoid when it is too hot-- hard to enjoy it outside when it is too hot!

Once the private ranch of Frank Phillips, founder of Phillips Petroleum Company, Woolaroc is a gem in the woods. Bison and Elk roam the estate that is studded with lakes and ponds. The lodge is usually not open to the public, but the Museum built of local sandstone is a great place to spend a morning or afternoon. You will... More

Frank Phillips, founder of the Phillips Petroleum Company (Previously Phillips 66, now Conoco-Phillips) was a driven man. Consumed by business building an oil empire in Oklahoma by day, he found solace and rejuvination on his 3,600 acre ranch in the rugged Osage Hills of Northeastern Oklahoma. Just 45 miles northeast of Tulsa, 12 miles West of Phillips headquarters, Bartlesville, this... More

I thought I would just get to see a few animals here, but not only were there a LOT of animals, there were great museums with Western history and Native American history. You can easily spend a few hours there.
