Another great museum you’ll want to visit is Woolaroc Museum and Wildlife Preserve – a hidden treasure tucked away in the beauty of Osage Hills in northeastern Oklahoma. The ranch began in 1925 as the retreat home for oilman Frank Phillips and is now an educational museum and outdoor wildlife preserve open to the public.
