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. Will Rogers once said, 'When you are visiting the beauty spots of this country, don't overlook Frank Phillips' ranch and game preserve in Bartlesville, Oklahoma. It's the most unique place in this country.’

  • An excellent place to stop and explore. Something for everyone! An amazing playground for kids. You could also spend a whole day deep diving through the wonderfully done museum. It was amazing having a herd of bison walk past our car. They have recently add a place to eat so don’t worry about stopping for lunch before either.
  • Great place for a day out. Particularly if you've got kiddos. Even adults too, though... The museum is amazing. Plus, there's a nice lunch Cafe w/good, reasonably priced food offers. I give Woolaroc 2 thumbs 👍👍! Way up!
