Weekend Trip Guide: Claremore, OK

Make Memories in Claremore

Claremore is Museum City with more museums per capita than any other city in the US! So while you're here make a stop at the JM Davis Gun Museum (I highly recommend the Outlaw Section) and browse over 40,000 pieces in a collection of firearms, steins, WWII posters, military memorabilia and more! The Will Rogers Memorial and Birthplace Ranch are must-sees. If you didn't know, Will Rogers is an American icon from the early 1900s. He was a movie star, trick roper, philosopher and much more. The Memorial Museum houses 12 galleries of artifacts from his life. The Birthplace Ranch, just 10 miles outside of Claremore, is a working ranch with longhorn cattle and a variety of other animals. The home where Will Rogers was born and raised is on-property and open for touring. The Ranch sits on the bluffs overlooking Oologah Lake offering breathtaking views. 


The dining experience in Claremore is wonderful with options from down home southern cookin' to high-end pub eats. Hammett House has been a Claremore staple for over 40 years and it's one you'll remember. They pride themselves on "mile high pie" that's worth saving room for dessert! The Pink House in historic Belvidere Mansion offers lighter choices in a tea room setting. Stop in for high tea, lunch or dinner and tour the 1909 Victorian Mansion while you're there. 


Claremore has an abundance of activities and events to take in while you're in town. You can always find a full listing of what's happening on our calendar of events. We have food truck nights, live horse racing and large festivals. If you like outdoor recreation and activities head out to Claremore Lake.
