  • Awesome vist, great museum and wildlife. Prices were extremely reasonable and the staff was friendly. Would highly recommend. 
  • Have been there many times over my life, starting in 5th grade. What a living lesson of our nations past. One of the best history museums I've ever been through. That Frank Phillips had one heck of hunting lodge, in prime Osage Hills grassland and forested mix of land and water. They have real shrunken heads from South America. Not for the faint of heart. Many large stuffed animals of our nations past, as well as live drive through on the way into the parking lot, nearly 2 miles off the hwy. Beautiful in fall folks. If you're into nature, take the time to do Woolroc, you won't regret.
  • Great place to take the kids, mountain man experience a must. You learn how things were back then. Makes you appreciate what we ALL have accomplished.
  • We had an amazing time here. By far the highlight of the trip was when we stopped at the Mountain Man Campsite where lots of native people had tents, tipis and things for sale. A man named Wes came up to us and started showing us around, explaining lots about local history, Indian history and also about Woolaroc. He knew a lot about the animals there. We were walking around and later, we saw a blacksmith working. He and his friends were really great, too, and spent a lot of time explaining blacksmithing to us. One thing that particularly struck me was how much respect Wes seemed to have for the animals and for preserving the balance of nature there. The animals were awesome! There were tons of buffalo, some of them were babies. (Stay away from the babies or their mamas get mad...and they have horns!) We saw almost every type of animal in the park. For us, though, the buffalo were by far the most interesting. They are not afraid of getting close to the road, either. They give you an audio CD when you come in, which tells about Woolaroc and Frank Phillips. Highly recommend this place!
  • Visited several times as a child, and recent returned after a two decade much more than I remembered and absolutely worth the drive. Such an amazing collection of Oklahoma, Native American and western history. Worth the drive.
  • Went there for Christmas and I was surprised at the amount of lights all over the place. It must have taken a month to get all of them up. But it was a truly beautiful experience.
