Claremore Area Information




Claremore is located on historic Route 66 and is known for its numerous area tourist attractions. The CVB was established to promote, market, sell, and service Claremore as a meeting, event,
leisure destination, and is funded totally by the hotel/motel tax.

Claremore is the home of humorist philosopher, actor, and Oklahoma´s favorite son, Will Rogers. A gallery/museum houses Rogers´ memorabilia including saddles, photographs, clothing, scripts, posters, and many other items relating to his life. The memorial has three theatres, interactive television, special children´s museum, research library, archives, and original art by Charles Russell, Charles Banks Wilson, and others.

This Claremore museum frames the Rogers family tomb in the sunken garden. Open every day from 8 am to 5 pm, admission is by voluntary contribution.

The Will Rogers Dog Iron Ranch was built in 1875. The birthplace is authentically conserved and open every day from dawn to dusk. The ranch is a living history of Will´s rich Native American and cowboy heritage where longhorn cattle and farm animals still roam. Picnic facilities, grass airstrip, and RV hook-ups are available. Admission is by voluntary donation. Two miles northeast of Oologah near highways 88 and 169.

A muzzle-loading shotgun given to John Monroe Davis by his father was the beginning of the world´s largest privately owned gun collection. Mr. Davis transferred ownership of his collection to the J.M. Davis Foundation Trust, where in-turn the foundation entered into an agreement with the State of Oklahoma for preservation of the collection. In addition to the over 20,000 firearms and related items, the museum houses Western, Native American, and Civil War artifacts, swords, knives, steins, hundreds of animal trophies, music boxes, instruments, political buttons, World War I posters, John Rogers´ Statuary, and more. Located on Route 66, the museum is open Monday through Saturday from 8:30 am to 5 pm, and Sunday from 1 to 5 pm. Closed Thanksgiving and Christmas. Admission is free.

The Claremore Park System is recognized as one of the finest in Oklahoma. Parks are accessible in every area of the city.
