Woolaroc Museum & Wildlife Preserve - Bartlesville,Oklahoma
It was Robert's Birthday and he wanted to go somewhere special. We left home and headed west into Kansas then went south to Oklahoma. We ended up at the Woolaroc Museum & Wildlife Preserve in Bartlesville, Ok. It is a special place that was created by Frank Phillips back in the 1920's. Frank Phillips was also in the oil business. You might know it as Phillips 66!
The museum is sat on 3700 acre wildlife preserve that is home to buffalo, deer, and zebras and also boasts a petting zoo. The 50,000 sq ft museum houses an array of plains Indian artifacts as well as many early settlement artifacts. You will find everything from moccasins to airplanes in this wonderful museum.
If you are in the area please go check it out. We spent 5 hours in the museum alone and we still felt like we didn't see everything. Another trip is already planned for a return visit in April of 2019!!!
Woolaroc Museum & Wildlife Preserve
The name of the Woolaroc Museum & Wildlife Preserve is derived from three words: woods, lakes and rock. Although these words say so much about the natural environment, they don’t begin to describe everything Woolaroc has to offer. Owned by oil tycoon Frank Phillips, the 3600-acre property was established in 1925 but today the Woolarock Museum & Wildlife Preserve is an educational & entertaining hub located in the beauty Osage Hills of northeast Oklahoma.

WOOLAROC 4K DAY TRIP
A museum and wildlife preserve located in the Osage Hills of Northeastern Oklahoma on Oklahoma State Highway 123 about 12 mi (19 km) southwest of Bartlesville, Oklahoma and 45 mi (72 km) north of Tulsa, Oklahoma. Woolaroc was established in 1925 as the ranch retreat of oilman Frank Phillips. The ranch is a 1500 hectare (3700 acre) wildlife preserve, home to over 30 different species of native and exotic wildlife, such as buffalo, elk and longhorn cattle. Woolaroc is also a museum with a collection of western art and artifacts, American Indian material, and one of the largest collections of Colt firearms in the world. Also on display is Woolaroc, the aircraft that won the ill-fated Dole Air Race in 1927. Woolaroc features a nature trail and a living history area inviting visitors to experience the natural environment of Woolaroc, the life in a pre-Civil War 1840's mountain man camp.
Woolaroc is a portmanteau of the words woods, lakes, and rocks that are featured in the beautiful Osage Hills of northeast Oklahoma where Woolaroc is located. The name was originally intended for the ranch house, but it soon became the name for the entire Frank Phillips ranch
Woolaroc Museum & Wildlife Preserve is owned and operated by The Frank Phillips Foundation, Inc. founded in 1937 by oilman Frank Phillips and his wife Jane Phillips. In 1944, Frank and Jane Phillips donated all of their personal ownership of Woolaroc (grounds, facilities, animals, collections and art) to the Foundation. At that time it was determined that the primary purpose of the Foundation was to assure the operation and the preservation of Woolaroc. The Foundation, a 501 operating foundation, is headed by a Board of Trustees. The mission of Frank Phillips when he built Woolaroc in 1925 was to preserve the history of the West, educate, and entertain. Today, the Foundation and the employees of Woolaroc still follow that mission.
The museum started out as a hangar in 1929 for the Woolaroc airplane, a plane Frank Phillips sponsored in the Dole Air Race from Oakland California to Honolulu, Hawaii in 1927. Over the years Frank continued to receive gifts, and made art acquisitions, and the museum grew room by room. The museum is 50,000 square feet and now has over 600 paintings, 300 bronzes, over 2,300 pieces of Native American art and artifacts, as well as many pieces of taxidermy that decorate the walls of the museum and lodge. The galleries feature some of the premier Indian and Western artists in America's history: Remington, Russell, Leigh, Moran, Couse, Johnson, Sharp, Balink, Hennings, Ufer, Berninghaus, Bierstadt.
