“Beautiful Museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

The Will Rogers Memorial has a beautiful collection of memorabilia from Will Rogers. It's a must see with the grounds being as beautiful as the museum. I've been to several special events here as well as having my engagement pictures taken. Great spot for a wedding!

“Oklahoma's favorite son”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013

Will Rogers was a very important part of American history. He had a nationally read daily newpaper column. He appeared on Broadway and in stared in several movies. The movies give you a glimpse at the atmosphere in USA when they were made.He played Polo and promoted air flight. Died in a crash in Alaska. One of our most fascinating citizens.

“A hidden gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

We always enjoy our visits here, although we have not been for quite some time. If you are interested in Will Rogers, this is a well-done museum. You can also visit Will's birthplace just a few miles away. That is worth the trip.

“I never met a museum I didn't like.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012 via mobile

The Wii Rodgers Museum is a must see for fans. Small, but noteworthy information. This was a spur of the moment visit, but very happy to have the trip. Kids would find it dull, but adults will find this little gem filled with a wonderious history of Mr. Rodgers.

“Worth detouring 60 miles off our itinerary.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012

We've always admired some of the comments by Will Rogers so decided to detour off the interstate to Claremore. This is a beautiful museum which really expands on the life and times of Will Rogers. Loved seeing all the original clippings and telegrams as well as the videos which were great quality. What a remarkable man-what he said 80 or 90 years ago is applicable today-especially to our political battles. We spent about 3 hours touring the various exhibits. We will probably return for another visit when we are westward bound.
