What impressed me most was how clean & well kept the place is. They said we could have a picnic anywhere on the grounds- and there's a lot of grounds!... More

It was well worth the price of admission for us. We saw buffalo, emus, ostriches, deer and a number of other animals. The lodge is picturesque but the museum was a highlight for me.

What a wonderful place--makes you appreciate the beauty of this part of Oklahoma. The museum alone is worth a visit, but kids will love seeing the animals and the ranch is just beautiful. Watch for the water buffalo in the lake.

Pack a picnic and plan to spend an afternoon here! There is so much history waiting to be learned, not only about Frank Phillips and Oklahoma, but also about his collections from all over the world.

The museum was absolutely fascinating with its Indian history and beautiful Indian paintings. Plenty of wild life even a couple of emus(we are from Australia) The only down side was the take away food was very pricey( 1 hotdog for $3.50) and almost inedible so take your own picnic there were plenty of tables to sit at. All in all... More

Peaceful setting, you will be impressed with this treasure.
