We absolutely liked this museum. Being a history buff and liking Will Rogers. It is a great place to see how he came into the spotlight. Would suggest this museum to anybody traveling near Tulsa.

We knew who Will Rogers was and realized how much we didn't know. When you decide to visit, the weekend they celebrate his birthday of Nov. 4 is the best time. You get in for free, awesome entertainment, Indians all dressed up, and cake for everyone. We learned so much about him and how he died doing what he loved.... More

This was a great place to learn about Will Rogers and his many careers. A couple of unique things were the saddle displays, diorama, and children's area in the lower level. We looked at art work, read quotes, saw a replica of the family sitting room, and watched movies while we were there. The museum sits on a hill and... More

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

I did not know much about Will Rogers, but added this museum to our itinerary because I figured my husband would like it. 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.
