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...

Woolaroc is full of history and natural beauty. From the Colt firearms collection to the extensive American Indian displays make Woolaroc a must see. Exotic animals abound in their natural habitats on the drive to the museum. A true Oklahoma treasure and an American hidden gem!

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.
