I have been to the memorial since I was a little girl and now, as a senior citizen, memories come flooding back every time I visit! As a child, I loved the dioramas of his life and as an adult, I always chuckle at his political observations. While visiting a couple of weeks ago, a traveler from Pennsylvania ask the... More

I thought I knew a lot about Mr. Rogers before I visited the museum, but I learned there was so much more to the story. The facility was very well maintained and a cool respite on a warm humid day. Much of what this man observed and said is still valid today. I would recommend taking your youngsters if they... More

We took a troop of Girl Scouts to the museum to earn a badge. I hadn’t been there since I was a kid. Its much easier to appreciate the kind of man Will was as an adult. The facility, after all of these years, is still top notch and well maintained. Much of what this simple Okie had to say... More

What a great tribute to Will Rogers, the museum is large and very well done, the grounds are beautiful. Lots of memoriabilia about him. It is a very relaxing place to visit & highly recommended, you can stay as long as you have the time, you are strickly on your own.

This is a really fun place to walk through and read. Since this is in a home, each of the rooms has memoriabilia about him and the different things he did in his life. They have a neat childrens area downstairs. My neice and nephew (12 & 10) enjoyed it too.

A very interesting and thorough tribute to America's Greatest Humorist! We've been here many times over the years, the first back in 1959. But we go occasionally and visit again with family and friends. The museum has an expanded display and much to see on Will and his family. His films are a delight for young and old alike with...

I really didn't know much about will Rogers as he's before my time, but after visiting this museum I am very impressed with the man and everyone involved in honoring his memory and all he did. This place is so big and attractive and is laid out perfectly to cover everything.
