Will Rogers Memorial Museum

Memorial museum and resting place for the American icon.

Reviewed By kes1639 - Bristow, Virginia

Excellent museum about the life of Will Rogers. Hard to believe the museum was built in the late 1930s following his death. Many people, especially the millennials, might not have an idea who Will was but they may know many of his phrases that he made famous. Museum is well put together and the rooms flow easily. We were a bit pressed for time so didn't get to see any of the presentations in the theaters. The docents were all very helpful and nice and will give you a private tour if you want. Definitely worth a stop.

Will Rogers Dog Iron Ranch and Birthplace Home

Birthplace of Will Rogers, now also a nature reserve.

Reviewed By MTravi - Nashville, Tennessee

Upon arrival you hear a voice talking about Will Rogers and the place. On further investigation you learn it is coming from the house. There was no one on the premises while I was there but you are free to walk around and explore the house and other outbuildings. There are goats, donkeys, horses, a cat, and a peacock in the corals and lawn area. Bathrooms are available in the barn area that connects to what looks like a dining area. A continuous video about Will Rogers plays in the dining area of the barn. A nice quick stop overlooking Lake Oologah. Stay as long as you like. Open everyday 8am-5pm. No admission charge. Side street parking available by the house.

Unusual is the word for this Route 66 roadside attraction. It has history having been created back in the 1970's as an anniversary gift from Hugh to Zelta Davis. Additions to the site followed including swimming, sand beach, picnic tables, life guards and even a reptile centre. Following over 20 years of neglect the Whale and site was 'restored' in 2011 by locals and businesses. For it's historic oddity value it's worth stopping providing you can find it as signage is minimal.

Belvidere Mansion

Reviewed By Morgalla - Tulsa, Oklahoma

While the house itself is fascinating in its own right for the architecture alone, we enjoy the gift shop and restaurant. They have an excellent lunch menu with an extensive hot tea selection, served in adorable individual tea pots. They have rooms you can reserve for a little girl's tea party or baby shower and a real ballroom on the third floor (no elevators though). It's owned by the local historical society and is still being restored. There was a ramp for wheelchairs out front to access the restaurant and gift shop which are on the first floor, but there are only stairs to access the second and third floors. If you can do stairs it's definitely worth a look up there to see the bedrooms and ballroom. We were made to feel very welcome and allowed to look around the entire house except the kitchen (it's a commercial kitchen) which is furnished with gorgeous Victorian era antiques. The place is run by volunteers who obviously spend a lot of time and effort trying to share the history of the house and help visitors enjoy themselves. They were in the middle of taking Christmas decor down (the whole mansion is decorated for each season) so it was a little chaotic, but we could still see everything. There are "before" pictures of how the mansion looked before the historical society restored it in photo albums. It's amazing the transformation! They have fundraisers and murder mystery plays several times a year to afford the improvements. The food is excellent and so reasonably priced for what we got. Highly recommend for a nice lunch with friends in an upscale atmosphere. Reservations aren't usually needed unless you bring a big group. If you call ahead they can get a volunteer to give a guided tour, but even the waitresses know a lot about the history if you just ask them. It's a great way to pass the time if your husband wants to go to the gun museum!

The Cave House

The Cave House in a landmark in Tulsa. It was built in 1924, as a Chicken Restaurant. Built during prohibition, it was a place you could quench your thirst! It not only has quirky architecture, but it probably best known for its stories, full of interesting and sometimes amusing information. It is a great date, or family adventure, and as the owner I love to share it! It is best to call, or message ahead, as I do not have regular hours. Due to scheduling for private tours and groups, and because travelers request all days and times, I try to schedule according to requests as best as I can. The cost is $10.00 for ages 16yr. and older. Ages 15yr and younger are $5.00.

Too interesting not to drive by (if you are in the neighborhood). Not interesting enough to drive by (if you are not in the neighborhood). The house is true to life and has existed for decades. I drove by the house endless times to and from a work location.
