While the world-class art in the museum is the primary draw for thousands of visitors to Woolaroc, for others it might be the landscape or the chance to see the buffalo herd or to visit the historic Lodge home. But for some (and as many adults as children!) one of the best reasons to visit Woolaroc is a chance to see the Petting Barn which opened for the season on March 19.

Nestled in the old dairy barn built by Frank Phillips and his crew in the 1930s, the Petting Barn is home to baby llamas, goats, sheep, miniature horses and more. Visitors may also walk through the History of the American Bison display which features storyboards sharing stories about this famous Woolaroc icon. Children are free to also see (and touch!) the skins and skulls of several animal types.

Woolaroc is open Wednesday thru Sunday until Memorial Day. After that it is open Tuesday thru Sunday until Labor Day. Located 12 miles SW of Bartlesville on Highway 123, admission to Woolaroc is $10 for adults, $8 for seniors 65+ and children 11 and under. Members of Woolaroc are free.
