#1 of 10 in Wildlife in Oklahoma
Art Museum History Museum
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.’

  • I've gone here since I was a kid. I love it! Hiking trails, the animals, petting zoo, the views, the museum, and events are great. Fun for all ages.
  • I don't get what all the buzz is about. I don't mean to bee a downer. The scenery was beeautiful though. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
  • This is an excellent way to spend a great day with the family since it has a little bit for all ages to enjoy and the children think the animals are the best so they don't even realize they are learning something .
  • Lots of Western art and artifacts to see, with wildlife to enjoy on the drive into the park.
  • 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.
