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

The Museum is well laid out with separate galleries for different areas of his life. Knowledgeable Docents are available... More

Museum's web site said museum is open 8-5 daily except closed on Thanksgiving and Christmas, with $5 admission fee for adults. I have the page printed out...dated 12/24/14. The only reason we stayed in Claremore was to go to this museum. Arrived at museum first thing in the morning and it was closed! Sign on door said open at 10,... More

Will Rogers was definitely a well-rounded individual. This museum has beautifully captured so many aspects of his life. The layout is absolutely wonderful. There were so many different short films, and interesting tidbits about Mr. Rogers. There is even an area in the basement of the museum for children. The museum staff were very friendly and eager to answer any... More

This is a lovely museum and tribute to Will Rogers. I am a huge admirer of Will Rogers and went specifically to the area to visit the memorial. Such nice folks work there, and we talked for a long time. The museum itself has many personal effects, informative displays, and of course, movies. (I took a drive over to Oologah... More

I was moved to tears in the diorama room. Truly. How many dioramas can you say that about? Overall, it's a humble, straight-forward museum-memorial-tribute to the legend. Coming from a man who only knows Will Rogers from what he's seen at the American Adventure at EPCOT, this was very eye opening. I wished the movie posters weren't computer reprints, but... More

An absolute "must see" for Western enthusiasts and an enjoyable venue for everyone else. Beautiful building and grounds. I could have spent hours here and plan to go again next time I'm in Oklahoma. A distinguished memorial to a man who is still "cool" almost 100 years after his prime!
