The Frank Phillips Ranch was founded in 1925 and the Woolaroc Museum had a humble beginning four years later in 1929. The 3,700 acre wildlife preserve is home to more than 30 varieties of native and exotic animals and birds. It is a working ranch that maintains the animals for the enjoyment of our guests in a natural, protected setting. The Woolaroc Museum presents one of the world's most unique collections of Western art and artifacts; Native American pottery, baskets, beads, blankets and cultural art; historical displays; and one of the most complete collections of Colt firearms. Guests can also tour the Lodge, which was used as a place for Frank Phillips to entertain his friends and maintain business relationships. The Lodge abounds with tales of the parties, business events and wilder goings-on.

Woolaroc is a one of a kind preserve set up by Frank Phillips, founder of Phillips Petroleum. The place was his weekend place. It has great driving trails, walking trails, Phillips lodge with antiques and items from his world travels, the museum that is world class, and an array of native animals in open and wooded environments with high fences...

Woolaroc really impressed us and offered a variety of activities in one place. The grounds are huge and offers a lot of different animals. Both as a safari where you can drive around and see a lot of animals, but also more of a petting area. When you pay your admission you also get a CD which is a kind... More

Woolaroc provides an interesting drive through buffalo herds to the beautiful main building which houses an abundant gallery of artwork -- paintings, sculptures, memorabilia.

THis is worth the trip. The ranch is original Phillips and has lots of animals and historical items. The museum has some of the best painting and art I have seen. While I am not a fan of guns the collection of the smaller firearms is just wonderful, and the barb wire collection, who knew? Just go.

We saw some buffalo, a few deer , some longhorn, and a zebra. I'm sure there were more, but they were out and about on the property. The museum was amazing, full of indian artifacts and art.

This "attraction" is well worth the 60 minute drive from Tulsa! The museum is excellently curated, the grounds are gorgeous and the wildlife tops it off. The only negative is the gift shop--unless you are shopping for kids. It was a bit off putting to find so many "made in China" stickers at this wonderful collection of Native American art... More
