Situated on a hilltop in the northwestern corner of Claremore, the setting for this world-class museum is as stunning as the museum itself. Excellent exhibits. The foyer, with the larger than life size statue of Rogers, is stunning. Take some time and catch some of the movies that are shown in the theater (projected from either VHS or perhaps DVD).... More

Well, it was definitely one of the top highlights of our 3-week road trip, for both of us. Unfortunately, we didn't leave ourselves enough time to see it properly. Will Rogers was a fascinating and many-faceted man.... More

I thought I knew everything about Will Rogers but I didn't. A very interesting museum, on beautiful grounds. An educational trip for the family.

Nice tour and history of Oklahoma's Native son. If you visit the Memorial make sure to go to the birthplace by Oolagah, well worth the time!

Our visit to Claremore as part of our explorations during our Route 66 road trip and the museum Guide "Pete" we learned that Will Rogers was... More

Great family museum. Room after room of information and artifacts from one of Oklahoma's own. Magnificent view overlooking the town. Theater inside playing Will Rogers many movies. Our Greeter was very friendly and knowledgeable. Gave us directions to visit the homestead only 13 miles away. Excellent for class trips.
