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.

This place is definitely worth the drive and admission! Before getting to the museum and all the building, you drive through a safari and see all kinds of animals! It’s scenery is so pretty and calming. There’s a museum to get some knowledge soaked up and to see all the cool stuff they have there. They also have a lot of hiking trails to hike on. The trails were very well kept and suitable for my toddler to hike too! Our favorite part had to be the petting zoo and the playground! I’ve never seen a decent sized playground as cool as this one. They’re even shaded areas to sit and relax as the kids play. We’ll definitely be going back soon!
This place has a great animal park with herds of numbers frontier animals such as elk and bison. The museum, gift shop, bath rooms, and other amenities such as playground and paths are very nice for a day trip or picnic. Especially if you have children ora well behaved dog, this place is a must-see if you're in the area.
