Woolaroc is close to where I grew up in Bartlesville Ok. and I have been there too many times to count. It has changed a little over the years, but never disappoints. Frank Phillips created this wonderful place with a great museum full of artifacts from ancient peoples, beautiful paintings and sculptures, and lots of wildlife. It is located in... More

We recently went to Wooloroc to the Mountain Man reenactment/encampment. It was a beautiful day to tour Wooloroc and see the grounds and visit with the reenactors. There were many tents and period-dressed people who relished talking to us and showing off their mountain man (and woman) skills. It was a fun step back in time. We later drove through... More

Took our kids to the kidsfest at Woolaroc. They really enjoyed it. I, of course enjoyed the museum the most. It is a fantastic collection. At no fault to Woolaroc, we got soaked by a rainstorm while trying to leave, but we all laughed about it and will return.

Dynamite place for locals but even more so for visiting friends and relatives. The animals are plentiful and the staff both outdoors and in the museum are knowledgeable and friendly

Once you enter the gates you begin to see the buffalo as the graze. Sometime there is a wait for them to cross. The mountain man camp is to the left where you can shoot black powder rifles and throw a tomahoc. The guys actually live there and make the clothing and have a great knowledge of what those times...

There was a lot of animals! It was so nice to learn a little more about the Western life. Seeing all of the arts and crafts was very neat. For this trip, PACK LUNCH! It's very pricy as far as concessions go. Tickets, not bad.

Since we only live about an hours drive from Bartlesville, OK, our parents used to take us to the museum about every other year. It really wasn't until I was an adult that I grew to appreciate the museum for all that it offers. It's a great place to take a picnic lunch with the family and enjoy the animals... More

From the beautiful scenery, to the variety of animals, the amazing exhibits in the museum to the nature trails, there is so much to see... More

I've always loved this place, came here on field trips as a kid and took my kids there when they were young! It's very beautiful and the animals are amazing! Had a family wedding at the building next to the lodge that can be rented. Awesome view over looking the lake and the staff was very friendly and helpful. Great... More
