  • This was our first visit here, and the staff were very cordial and knowledgeable regarding Will Rogers. There is a price of admission, but you'll get your money's worth. Kudos to Andy for giving us an initial introduction of the legendary Will Rogers as we stepped into the main foyer to begin our journey back in time. There were several niches and larger, cavernous rooms that held a multitude of paintings, videos and memorabilia. Several locations had a QR Code emblazoned on the wall beside each area to play audio detailing that particular area. So make sure you download a QR Code reader app on your smartphone. There is also a kids area with activities such as playing dress-up, building with the classic Lincoln Logs, and more, Unfortunately the kids area is a few small flights downstairs with lower-than-normal handrails, so if you have mobility issues it may be an issue. The gift shop had a wide range of items - ranging from Will Rogers movies, books, and the usual Route 66 fare. The woman operating the gift shop was also quite savvy in all things Will Rogers. Overall I would highly recommend this museum. Be sure to visit Hammett House restaurant down the road to enjoy a great meal, but that's another review.
  • We didn't get to enter as it had just closed. Been YEARS since I visited. Did enjoy looking around the grounds. The view was terrific. Will return to visit earlier in the day. Brought my sister to visit, she's from Ohio.
