Attraction details
Recommended length of visit: More than 3 hours
Owner description: 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.

“Great place for the family”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

We've visited here many times going back to the 1970s. At that time it was free, but there is a small admission charge now. It has always been a great place for the kids and adults. Lots of history, animals, petting area, etc. Beautiful setting.

“bison are big”
Reviewed February 9, 2013

we were told not to expect much do to the weather, being hotter than blazes. We saw an entire herd of buffalo and it was a blast and yes, they are huge. The museum was fun also....

Great for kids. We went during a festival and there were tons of activities! Also went during a mountain man festival which provided many photo ops.

“Great Family Fun”
Reviewed February 3, 2013

Great place, only about 45 min to an hour north of Tulsa. Lots of interesting displays in the Museum and Lodge. The herds of elk and buffalo are awe-inspiring to watch.
Don't miss the Mountain Man camp and traders camp that open in March. The cowboy shoot is fun to watch, too. Also, Kidsfest in June. And don't miss the Christmas-time Wonderland of Lights!
Closed on Mondays!
