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.

I greatly enjoyed coming here. The Mountain Man exhibit was great, I threw a tomahawk, the speaker was very knowledgeable and actually lives out a bit of that lifestyle he speaks on. We saw quite a few deer, ostrich, buffalo, water buffalo, horses, and a...More

It was a shame that there were so few visitors at Woolaroc. I came here as a young girl. It was so fun bringing my nephew. He was able to climb the tower. The Buffalo sucking trash is also always a must see. Don't forget...More

Buffalo were lounging in the shade of the trees on the way to the Mountain Man Camp. It was a hot afternoon. You might see more animals roaming on a cooler day. The Museum is enormous and full of art and history. Small children would...More

We spent a half day there, spending the vast majority of the time seeing the enormous museum collections. We did not have our children with us, and I suspect it could have required some negotiation if we did; the volume of exhibits would have overwhelmed...More

Just outside Bartlesville, this preserve is a must see! Lots of animals roaming around and behind fences--elk, buffalo to name a few. You wind through the landscape to the museum/lodge/petting zoo. I especially enjoyed the museum which had seven rooms each concentrating on an historical...More

Woolaroc is beautiful! Lots of animals roaming around, the museum is nice, but don't miss the ranch house! You can eat lunch here too. Cost is 12/pp.

Woolaroc is well worth the admission price. I encourage you to get the free CD to listen to as your drive to the museum. Plan to spend 3-4 hours at least. Nice areas to sit outside and bring snacks or lunch,

It depends. If you are with children, they will want to see the animals inside one of the buildings. There is a large museum. If you like museums, you could spend an hour or two here. Frank Phillips house is also a museum... More

I too would allow half a day. My husband and I spent longer, but we did read a lot of things and we ate there too.
