We actually thought about skipping this museum due to time constraints...wow would that have been a mistake. This is a really good museum that covers the life of Will Rogers. Great exhibits, well organized. I thought I knew a lot about Will Rogers, but learned so much more. The staff is great as well. You have to stop here.

My husband and I took my mom here for her birthday. This was a place my mom and dad kept talking about visiting and never got to before my dad passed away. The price was great! We spent a little over 2 hours learning about Will. It was very clean and well organized! What a great place! Go and see... More

Western and political history at its finest! We were amazed at how little we actually knew about this American icon. Do yourself a favor and make time to spend at least a couple of hours here.

Tons of info to take in...reading, videos, clips, radio spots, etc...so, PLAN on being there a long time if you want to take it all in. Plenty of places to sit and rest. Nice garden / burial area outside. Air conditioned for those HOT days. Gift shop. Veterans and seniors are slightly discounted on the admission. PLENTY OF PARKING. Don't... More

We visited the Will Rogers Memorial Museum since we had some time on our hands while visiting our son at Rogers State. We are so glad we did. This place is great! You get to go back in time and discover what a fascinating man Will Rogers was. This is a part of Americana that needs to be shared with... More

Our family of four usually whizzes through Oklahoma on our way to visit the Grandparents out west, but with some extra time on this trek, we thought we'd peek in at the Will Rogers Memorial. We wish we'd had more time to spare here. This well-designed museum triumphantly exceeded our expectations, and I'd say it's on a par with just... More

Our family of six (from age 71 to 15) stopped at the Will Rogers Museum not really knowing much of anything about him. We all learned a great deal and were all glad we included the stop on our trip. With the many video displays the museum seems to appeal to all ages. We definitely thought it was worth our... More
