Overview
More
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.

Was afraid we wouldn’t see animals as we drove through. Saw deer and buffalo right in the gate. The water buffalo were relaxing in the river. The art gallery was amazing and I could have spent all day in there. The lodge was interesting but...More

While I've visited this museum in the past, it had been several years since my last visit. What a pleasant surprise! The museum has been expanded and updated to the point that it is a top-notch attraction! You can spend hours seeing all the exhibits,...More

The ranch & wildlife preserve was very good. You pay as you enter the property ($24 for 2 adults) and drive through the wildlife preserve as you make your way to the museum. Large herd of buffalo and long horn steers were enjoyable to observe....More

Loved the animals and the art. The museum is wheelchair accessible and the tour guide at the home also made a point of accommodating our wheelchair so that my wife did not feel left out. This was a Day well spent.

A unique and wonderful place to visit. I believe they are closed on Monday. Snack area has tasty buffalo burgers I like to take my own food and drinks to save on costs.

Woolaroc has something special for everyone no matter their age. We really enjoy the art history and the petting zoo. Make sure to check out the hiking trails. Also the special events the have are second to none like children’s weekend and Halloween.

I think it would be appropriate. We saw a family with a stroller and they seemed to be enjoying their visit. There are elevators where needed so we see no impediment to families with strollers.
