Great time walking though the museum, sing great art and history of a great man. Take time to watch a film in the theatre. I proposed to my wife on the back step overlooking Claremore with all the flowers back in 1991.

This museum is a great tribute to Will Rodgers and is in a very nice hill top setting. There is also a nice gift shop with a large selection of books and a variety of other items related to Will Rodgers and Oklahoma history. We spent about 2 hours on our visit and could have used another hour but gad... More

You won't be disappointed when you visit the Will Rogers Memorial Museum. When we have company coming from out of state this is one of our favorite places to take them. The memorial to Will Rogers is very well done and very enjoyable for adults and for school age children. So much to see as well as videos of Will... More

Outstanding awareness made of one of America's most "down to Earth", favorite sons! Much history and unique "tidbits" showing how not only how true his speeches, sayings and thoughts were back then, but how they can be applied to today's world, making him as relevant today as he was back in the early 20th Century!

We realized we didn't know much about Will Rogers until we visited the Memorial just outside of Tulsa. We are in our late sixties and he lived his life before we were born. We attended an informative talk in the auditorium and then looked at a lot of artifacts from his life. Didn't realize just how much he did in... More

I am in the bank travel business. I take senior citizens on bus tours. I took a group to Claremore, Oklahoma on September 23rd and 24th. Wednesday, the 23rd was "Will Rogers Day" for my group. We visited the memorial in the afternoon and then spent the evening at his ranch. The Memorial Museum is located on a hill overlooking... More

We were at the museum this past weekend for a wedding reception and it was such a lovely venue for an outdoor party. The grounds are beautiful, there's plenty of parking, and residential areas are far enough that there's no need to keep the noise down.

This was not originally on our itinerary but I'm glad we stopped. The museum is very good and I encourage anyone visiting close to Claremont to stop and visit. Will Rogers was a legend. He was a cowboy, actor, writer and political satirist among other things, and he died too soon.

Thank TwinMom1995
