  • Excellent museum about the life of Will Rogers. Hard to believe the museum was built in the late 1930s following his death. Many people, especially the millennials, might not have an idea who Will was...  more »
  • We were surprised by the large amount of information within this museum. Very well organized exhibits. I loved the combination of videos and print documents.  more »
  • There is nothing like experiencing Will Rogers legacy whether you are a first-timer or returning for the 100th visit! We, recently, had a family reunion in Claremore and added a tour of the Memorial t...  more »

  • Very small but interesting. Lots of paintings and statues. Not tons of original artifacts. Staff is nice. There was an anniversary celebration going on while the museum was open. Odd.
  • Really excellent place to learn not only about Will Rogers and his life, but Oklahoma as well. The museum itself is very well done, and situated on a hill so visitors can see for miles. The theater and show was also a treat.
  • Tons to read...see...take in. Tons of info to take in...reading, videos, clips, radio spots, etc...so, PLAN on being there a long time if you want to take it all in. Plenty of places to sit and rest. Nice garden / burial area outside. Air conditioned for those HOT days. Gift shop. Veterans and seniors are slightly discounted on the admission. PLENTY OF PARKING. Don't forget to hit the "THUMBS UP" button if you found my review helpful.
  • A wonderful Museum showing Will Rogers personal collection of saddles and other memorabilia. You can easily spend several hours touring the museum
  • I lived down the street from the museum in 1985. My twin sister and I would visit the museum often, to escape the heat, and watch the movies. I've since moved but came back to specifically visit the museum again. Such great memories!!! Like the upgrades too. I wonder what Will Rogers would have accomplished had he lived longer.
