The Oklahoma Military Academy Museum in Claremore tells the stories of the more than 10,000 cadets who attended the school from 1919 until it closed in 1971. The museum showcases a variety of artifacts and memorabilia highlighting the service and sacrifice of area men in wartime, including a re-creation of a typical cadet room, weaponry donated by former cadets, uniform items, photographs and various trophies and awards won.

Located across the street from the Will Rogers Memorial, the histories of both places are intertwined, as Will Rogers took an active interest in the Oklahoma Military Academy during his later years. The OMA Museum is located on the second floor of Meyer Hall, which once served as one of the academy’s barracks and is listed on the National Registry of Historic Places.

The OMA began as a cavalry school until tanks arrived in the mid-1940s. More than 2,500 graduates of the academy served in wars. The museum’s Killed in Action Memorial, located between Preparatory Hall and Meyer Hall, lists all former OMA cadets who were killed in action during various U.S. war engagements. Don't miss The Lone Cadet statue standing in front of the university flagpole, a memorial to the cadets who attended the Oklahoma Military Academy.
