Woolaroc Museum & Wildlife preserve - the ranch of Mr. Phillips (of Phillips 66 oil fame) and his wife. Peaceful rolling hills in the middle of pretty much nowhere. You will be given an audio CD to play as you drive through the entrance to the museum (deposit it in a marked box on your way out). You are greeted... More

This is a must see when visiting NE Oklahoma. It's a great piece of history. During the holidays they have beautiful Christmas lights with a real cowboy or Indian all lit up riding in the woods. There is a great museum and lots of deer and buffalo on the preserve.

When you visit Oklahoma this must be one of your stops. Museum and its exhibits are first class and very informative. I have visited this beautiful ranch and wildlife preserve for more than 50 years since I was a child and it keeps getting better. The summer they do living history with actors and Christmas they light up the entire... More

It's a great place to visit. Really fun ride out to the center. The ability to see the buffalo and other animals walking around. And the animals. And the museum is loads of fun.

Well we had some time this weekend to head up to Woolaroc Ranch, Museum, and Wildlife Preserve. From downtown Tulsa the GPS routed us to Oklahoma Hwy 20 west and then back north on Hwy 11. What a peaceful and quiet drive... After about 45 min we arrived at the front gate and paid our admission and received a CD... More

Woolaroc offers a great opportunity for kids and adults alike to explore both nature and history. The museum is top notch, offering exhibits on the history of Oklahoma, it's native peoples, and the oil patch. The living history reenactors- available in the warm months - give a window into the past. And, the wide variety of animals roaming the pastures... More

As you pass the gate, you begin a 2 mile drive through the wildlife preserve that leads to the museum parking. The highlight of the drive was a closeup of the buffaloes, free roaming, and grazing on the side of the road. The entrance to the museum is gorgeous, and the various statues and petrified woods on the esplanade are... More

No matter how many times you visit Woolaroc...you will always find something you've either never seen or missed many times before! It's so much more than just a museum..it's buffalo roaming free, animal petting areas...and don't forget...save your hunger of one of their awesome buffalo burgers!!!! It's an annual tradition in my family.

If you haven't been there during the Christmas season, you have really missed out. After dark is best so you can enjoy the fantastic lights. Don't miss the tractor/trailer ride (watch for the live Indian on horseback). Mid point of the ride there is a stop at the lodge where you can see the beautiful interior and have hot chocolate...
