Spring Break at Will Rogers Memorial Museum and Will’s Birthplace Ranch at Oologah can be a special time for young people looking for something new and different. It is an especially good time for grandparents, who often have children for the break, to share traditions and history.
Daily afternoon activities, 1p – 3p, will be March 19 – 23 — Monday, Wednesday and Friday at the Memorial Museum and Tuesday and Thursday at the Birthplace Ranch. All children 17 and under will be admitted free, thanks to a donation from Win and Kay Ingersoll.
Will’s love of aviation, sports, outdoors and the 100th anniversary of his first movie will be included in daily activities, concluding with the Mid-Afternoon Frolic Talent Show on Friday with cash prizes for first, second and third place awarded in age groups of 5-12 and 13-18.
Monday – Poster making, art class, movie script writing and “Behind the Scenes” tour of the Museum
Tuesday — Baseball, one of Will’s favorite sports
Wednesday — Aviation, paper airplanes and contest, career opportunities with Spartan School of Aeronautics and close-up view of Air Evac helicopter
Thursday — Polo with former player Dana Ward Shouse and “on foot” with junior mallets
