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.

We took our grand kids to this event. As 70 year olds with a 4 year old and 7 year old, it was diffcult to keep up with them. We spend two hours hours viewing everything. Don't miss the second floor of the museum as well as the basement. Our grand kids had to look at everything. Also, don't forget... More

This attraction in a rural portion of OK has a bit of something for everyone in the family. The entry drive can show several species of "exotic" animals either roaming free or in large pens. There are trails through the woods, lake and rocks that you can walk on. The main lodge is an interesting look at an example of... More

There is so much to love about Woolaroc museum and wildlife preserve. We meant to stay only an hour or so during our drive across the country, but ended up walking around the museum for 3 hours. Then we added the drive around the wildlife preserve, and petting zoo adding another 45 minutes to our visit. We had a really... More

We had a great time here. The adults and kids both enjoyed it. The museum is unbelievable. Don't miss it. The kids loved the indoor petting zoo. You are given a cd to play when you enter the park that identifies all of the wild animals in the park. The ostriches were especially friendly. They came right up to our... More

Most folks go here just to see wildlife such as Bison and Longhorn cattle in a natural setting. Worthwhile, if that is your thing. Others come here to visit the museum, and especially enjoy the Native American paintings and artifacts. Me, I really came to see the Colt firearm collection hidden away on the lower level of the museum. Easy... More

You have got to see the stagecoach, the airplane and the Charles Russell statues. The new display lighting is excellent. Kids can actually see art and not complain about being bored. The trails are picturesque, the lodge is haunted and the museum is one of a kind.

This is a great place to take the kids! As you take the 2 mile drive to the museum, you can see some really cool animals. We seen a zebra, ostriches, water buffalo, llamas, & several other animals. The museum is also very interesting, as most of the things in there was found within a few miles of the museum.... More

The Place to Visit - live animals, good concession stand food (i.e. try the bbq buffalo sandwich), spacious and interesting museum, and educational experience! A Must See in Bartlesville

We were in Bartlesville for business and ended up having a couple free days. While Bartlesville is a beautiful city, Woolaroc is incredible. What a tranquil and beautiful place. Lots of wildlife including buffalo and deer. You gotta sit on Frank Phillips porch and look down on the lake and buffalo. It is spectacular, what a view. The history is... More
