Rural Oklahoma Museum of Poetry
Locust Grove, OK 74352
The Rural Oklahoma Museum of Poetry in Locust Grove invites visitors to get inspired by reading the poems of others and creating their own. Located in a machine-shop-turned-museum, ROMP offers hands-on exhibits like poetry blocks and reading chairs. Exhibits and displays range from doors, cats and symbolism to more concrete objects like the items in your pocket or purse. Guests are invited to write about their secrets, jewelry and more while visiting the museum. There's even the option of playing poem poker, where the player with the best hand wins.
