The Frank Phillips Ranch was founded in 1925 and the Woolaroc Museum had a humble beginning four years later in 1929. The 3,700 acre wildlife preserve is home to more than 30 varieties of native and exotic animals and birds. It is a working ranch that maintains the animals for the enjoyment of our guests in a natural, protected setting. The Woolaroc Museum presents one of the world's most unique collections of Western art and artifacts; Native American pottery, baskets, beads, blankets and cultural art; historical displays; and one of the most complete collections of Colt firearms. Guests can also tour the Lodge, which was used as a place for Frank Phillips to entertain his friends and maintain business relationships. The Lodge abounds with tales of the parties, business events and wilder goings-on.

Don't miss this treasure! We came an hour before closing, they stamped our ticket, and we were able to come back the next day. The animals roam freely, the lodge is a museum of exciting history, and the artwork/artifacts at the museum is exceptional for cowboy and Indian art. All the docents were so friendly. Great experience!

It's a great place all year...in winter to drive through and see the lights with the kids. You can also get out and go see different things inside and out .

Educational and fun for my granddaughters who had never seen buffalo, or been close to real animals in a petting zoo.

This is an annual trip for our family. Lots of lights to see and a wagon ride also-be sure to check out the electric horseman!! There are cookies and hot chocolate sold in the Lodge and a hamburger shack available also. Museum is open with Santa available for the kids. Long lines and lots of people-but that is part of...

What a wonderful preservation of Oklahoma history! There is so much information available in this museum and the wildlife preserve is fascinating. So thankful that Mr. Phillips and the City of Bartlesville had the foresight to preserve a period of time we will not ever see again!

Kiddie Park is the best deal in town if you have kids. Open as soon as school is out, there's rides for little to mid-sized kids. Snow cones and a train too! You can't beat the prices and your kids will be exhausted from all the fun.

Went here with my children and grandchildren. The wildlife was everywhere and close enough to get a good look. The museum was good for all ages. The grandchildren enjoyed the train and doll exhibit. The men enjoyed the gun collection. Had a nice time at the playground and petting zoo with the kids. Baby Buffalo was a nice treat to... More

Woolaroc is a beautiful, peaceful place. As you enter the property, you pass the vintage Phillips 66 station. You then see lots of bison, deer and other wildlife as you drive the winding road that leads to the museum and ranch house. The museum houses a vast collection of native American artifacts and western art, along with history of the... More

This was a nice find in the middle of nowhere Oklahoma. Lol. The museum surprised us - it is very large and extensive! The displays were excellent and we saw things we had never seen before in other museums. Tons of info! My husband was especially impressed with the size of the colt firearms room. If you like to read... More

Went in January on a quiet day. Museum with native american and western focus was excellent. My son really enjoyed the firearms collection as well. Extensive outdoor areas with many different animals, had to wait for the buffalo that were on the road as we left, very cool. Also have hiking trails and petting zoo areas. The lodge was closed...
