With a history of black gold dating back to 1905, Bartlesville is a hub of architecture, culture, history and art in Oklahoma. As the home of Phillips Petroleum Company, Bartlesville boasts attractions you won’t find anywhere else. Stop at the Woolaroc Ranch, Museum and Wildlife Preserve that was once the “second home” of Frank Phillips, founder of Phillips Petroleum Company. It has an impressive collection of Native American and Western art, and everything from bison to Japanese Sika deer roam on the property’s 3,600 acres.

Visit the Price Tower & Price Tower Arts Center to see modern art and feats in design including works by Oklahoma architect Bruce Goff. The Price Tower is famous architect Frank Lloyd Wright’s only fully-realized skyscraper and has been designated a National Historic Landmark.

Learn Bartlesville's history at the Phillips Petroleum Company Museum, and take in over a week of sophisticated fun at the annual OK Mozart International Music Festival each summer to get a sense of what this city in northeast Oklahoma is all about.
