I came to the Will Rogers Memorial Museum and enjoyed my visit. There are many artifacts of Will Roger's life and there is a very entertaining roping movie that cannot be seen anywhere else. The garden is well kept and quite pretty.

The grounds and entry are very well kept and sits on a hill with a beautiful view of the city. If you knew little or nothing about the legacy and person of Will Rogers before your visit, you will be pleased and gain much knowledge as you see, hear, read, and watch an amazing story of his life. So glad... More

Took my kids here for a visit and they just soaked in the history. My son who is now 17 loves learning about Oklahoma history and was excited to visit. The kids liked it so much they asked to visit Will Rogers birth place. I like that it's a free place to take the kids when it's hot out and... More

My favorite exhibit was the Roping Fool video. The museum is very well laid out and can be done at your own speed. A docent was available but we declined the guided tour.

Didn't realize the depths and areas that Will Rogers was associated with. Learned about the man, the father, the humanitarian, the actor and the son. He was a no nonsense guy with a depth of wisdom.

The art work in this museum is just fantastic! The portraits of Will Rogers are just wonderful! The live footage of him (especially the ones with his rope tricks) were really endearing. There is also an area downstairs for children to engage in building a log cabin with Lincoln logs, "riding" a horse (sawhorses with saddles), a puppet theater, etc.... More

Claremore, OK is a quaint little town of the beaten path a home of the Will Rogers. Unfortunately, many people do not know of the wonderful man that was a cowboy, vaudeville performer, writer, actor, entertainer and radio personality and avid traveler to just name a few of his occupations. I wonder what his TripAdvisor posts would be like and... More
