The Will Rogers exhibit is as exciting as Will Rogers. Movies, artifacts (actual saddles, etc.) Much to see. Best if you give yourself a couple of hours. Interesting gift shop too with many of W.R.'s books.

I used to take my children here all the time. I don't think they understood the historical significance at the time. But they loved the auditorium with the vintage reels playing and going down into the children's area. A small donation and I got time...More
