“Worth detouring 60 miles off our itinerary.”
Reviewed November 24, 2012

We've always admired some of the comments by Will Rogers so decided to detour off the interstate to Claremore. This is a beautiful museum which really expands on the life and times of Will Rogers. Loved seeing all the original clippings and telegrams as well as the videos which were great quality. What a remarkable man-what he said 80 or 90 years ago is applicable today-especially to our political battles. We spent about 3 hours touring the various exhibits. We will probably return for another visit when we are westward bound.

“Wonderful museum for a great American”
Reviewed November 19, 2012

This museum was one of the highlights of our trip west. Our only regret was that we didn't have enough time to read everything by the exhibits. The museum gave us a real 'feel' for what a great American Will Rogers was. The variety of saddles on display was wonderful, some we had never seen before. The movie about Will is entertaining while sharing history. Not to be missed if you are anywhere nearby.

“History”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

Will Rogers was truly known world wide and was greated as a head of state. Because of his honesty, wit, and charm. He truly loved people. This is carried on in this great museum with thousands of items, news clippings, videos, and actual movie theatres with his movies playing in them. Very entertaining with an excellent gift shop. Beautiful setting. My dog barked at his statue for some reason.

“Worth a Visit!”
Reviewed October 31, 2012 via mobile

Will Rogers was an Amazing Man! We Loved His Museum! Educational, Fun and Very Interesting! The Building itself is Worth the Entrance Fee to View! Take your time and read all the material that is on display, we learned a lot about a Man we thought we already knew! Don't miss this Fascinating Treasure, in a little town Called Claremore!
