Will Rogers Memorial Museum
We are currently closed to the public.
The first priority of the Oklahoma Historical Society is the health and safety of our patrons, volunteers, and staff. We stand with our fellow Oklahomans in the effort to contain the spread of COVID-19. We have closed our sites and affiliates to the public through April 16.
In an effort to minimize gatherings, all OHS-sponsored events are canceled or postponed through May 2, and some events have been canceled beyond that date. We are posting all changes on our events calendar to keep you updated as the situation develops.
Thank you for your support and for being part of the OHS community.
With Will Rogers’s untimely death in 1935, debate began quickly on how to honor America’s “Cowboy Philosopher.” Discussion on the location of where to build a monument was at the top of the list.
With the help of Betty Rogers, the Oklahoma Legislature and thousands of individual donors, the Will Rogers Memorial in Claremore, Oklahoma, opened to the public on November 4, 1938.
The beautiful limestone facility houses the largest collection of Will Rogers memorabilia in the world and all of his writings. The Museum has twelve galleries, a children’s museum, theater, and library. The grounds also have a lovely sunken garden where Will Rogers, his wife Betty, and several family members are entombed.
