Lots of history of the era, some interactive even, as well as a look into the life of the famous 'Will Rogers'. Beautiful setting for celebrations and weddings as well. Claremore is blessed to have this place. if you enjoy history, this is for you.

We visited this attraction late one afternoon in May, 2015. We found the attraction well laid out and very extensive. It would be very easy to spend two or more hours here if you were a Will Rogers fan........ Well worth a detour to visit here..... We were made very welcome......

The museum was a gathering of many interesting things from his movies to his writings. I did not know some of the things he had been part of and it was amazing to learn of all of them.

A wonderful collection of items surrounding the life of Will Rogers, telling of his childhood, early years, and career as the "people's spokesperson" for events of the day. This is a very well done presentation, encompassing Will's life complete with art, posters, newspapers, awards, videos, and collections. It will be easy to spend three to four hours perusing the memorial... More
