Woolaroc Museum & Wildlife Preserve, Bartlesville

4.8
Founded in 1925 by oilman Frank Phillips, Woolaroc is a 3,700 acre working ranch that has a 50,000 square foot museum with a collection described by Christie’s of New York as “one of the finest collections of southwest art in the world” along with the original Lodge home and a large herd of bison, elk, longhorn cattle, scotch highland cattle and hundreds of deer. Woolaroc museum hosts an outstanding collection of western art and artifacts, Native American material, and one of the finest collections of Colt firearms in the world. The name WOOLAROC is derived from three words—the woods, lakes and rocks that make up the beautiful Osage Hills of northeast Oklahoma where Woolaroc is located. The name was originally intended for the rustic Lodge ranch house, but it was so unique that it soon became the name for the entire Frank Phillips ranch. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places in Washington, D.C., and a NARM (North American Reciprocal Museum) member which allows members access to over 800 national museums for free. Will Rogers once said, 'When you are visiting the beauty spots of this country, don't overlook Frank Phillips' ranch and game preserve in Bartlesville, Oklahoma. It's the most unique place in this country.’

  • We all had a blast at this place! The kids had plenty of room to run around and we loved it! Bright inside the gate there's a place you can have a picnic so if you have family coming from different spots or locations you can all meet right there pretty easy.
  • I love this place. I've been coming here since I was a kid and now I get to bring my kid here. The museum is awesome to walk through and the grounds are always kept up beautifully. Lots of different things to do outdoors as well as indoors.
  • What an amazing day! Weather was beautiful as well as the scenery. Looking forward to the Spring ride. Woolaroc is an awesome place!
  • Our group (Rowdy Retirees) take road trips frequently. This was our destination on our last road trip and we were not disappointed. A beautiful place full of history to visit.
  • We really enjoyed driving through the park and seeing the animals. The museum is very informative. They have a great collection. We are glad that we stopped here along our trip in Oklahoma.
