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.

Cool live animals. Cool stuffed (dead) animals, if you are into that kind of thing. Cool museum with an impressive collection of guns and other stuff. Some unusual specimens.

I've been twice. The first time with my husband back in 2010. We were wild with the buffalo, roaming around and seemingly at peace. There were even calves (assuming it's a still a calf as a baby buffalo) and other animals such as ostriches and a water buffalo. The entire place had a serene feel to it and offers homage... More

The museum is ~22 miles sw of Bartlesville, on Frank Phillips hilltop wildlife preserve. Plan to spend most of your time touring the museum's collections. The number of the bronzes and paintings are too numerous to list. Apparently, money was no object. I have never seen so many famous artists of western art represented in one place. There is American... More

This is the country estate of the oil baron Frank Phillips. At his location you will find the Phillips Lodge, Museum, and a Wildlife Preserve. The museum has many paintings and a collection of Native American artifacts. There is also a petting Zoo and playground for kids.

Woolaroc is a hidden gem in Oklahoma. One of my favorite museums in several states. The place is rustic, with a great collection, a remote, quiet location, stunning scenery. I highly recommend for history buffs of all types.

This is what memories are made of. While Woolaroc has seen better days, and while the grounds aren't quite as clean and groomed as they once were, the entire experience both in the museum and outside on the grounds, are unlike anywhere else.

Ranch on prairie. Large museum with impressive western art and large gun collection. Unique setting for booking a wedding also.

The oil men of the plains were not only gifted in building oil empires but were lavish in the legacies they left behind. No where is this culture better revealed than in the mind numbing world class museums they built and left for us to see.

Must see place if you are in northeast Oklahoma. Things for everyone! Wild animals, frontier and native art, old guns, and amazing landscape.
