Kids, did you ever think you could be in Oklahoma, and spending the day surrounded by 3,700 acres of wildlife preserve, where native and exotic wildlife roam all around you?
Welcome to Woolaroc Museum and Wildlife Preserve! Established back in 1925, it's where kids can have amazing animal encounters, as well as learn all about art, culture and history too!
Let's start with the preserve itself. With over 30 species, it certainly feels the animals of the world have all come to YOU! Once you enter the Woolaroc grounds, you are welcomed with a 2 mile drive that takes you through the animal preserve, and back to the main complex.
It's during this drive that you might feel you are on an adventurous safari around the plains of the USA or Africa! Get those explorer hats on! The animals here roam freely, so kids can witness just how they would be in their natural environments. No zoo cages at Woolaroc!
This also means that around every bend there could be a new surprise, as you just don't know what you are going to encounter next! Maybe it will be the American Buffalo, or the elk, or perhaps the longhorn cattle - all icons of the USA!
How about coming face to face with the adorable Japanese Silka deer, or the North European fallow deer? You might spot the fast ostriches, or the llamas, or find species that you had never heard of before, like the aoudad!
Once you have finished, you can explore the Woolaroc Museum, where you can see one of the most unique displays of Western art and artifacts. There is also a briliiant collection of Native American art and artifacts, where kids can really gain an understanding about the incredible culture and traditions.
Don't miss the fun children's playground and petting zoo too - they know what kids love!
So why not experience a wonderful day of animal encounters, and unforgettable learning at the Woolaroc Museum and Wildlife Preserve - the animals are waiting for you!
If you want to spend a bit more time, why not stay in the lodge on site! It's beautiful!
There is a concession stand where you can pick up sandwiches, snacks and drinks.
Healthy Eating There are picnic tables that you can enjoy your own food on!
