We totally enjoyed the experience, along with the mini-museum that is available to walk through as you wait for your tour to begin. The guides were knowledgeable and seemed to enjoy their service. It was a wonderful glimpse into the past.

What amazing history and culture that exists in this home. The story behind this home is incredible. I'd definitely recommend seeing this first prior to going to Woolaroc.

My husband and I took my mom to tour the house and were very impressed with the tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable and had some cute stories, The home itself was really cool and love that they had so many original pieces of furniture from the family, Would definitely recommend this if you are passing thru. Also has a little museum to walk thru were you can learn about Mr. Phillips.

We took the tour with Don as our guide. The house is very well preserved and Don gave us a great tour. Parking is limited, but we didn’t have any trouble finding a spot across the street from the home. Take time to go to Woolaroc if you are in the area, it’s an amazing place.

This was the home of Frank Phillips who was one of the founders of Phillips 66 which is now called Phillips/Conoco. This is a three story house. There are some paintings by very well known artists such as in the living room. Ask the guide to show you the secret hideaway downstairs that was installed because of the kidnapping of the Lindberg baby. There's another secret panel in the linen closet on the second floor. Look for the barber chair that Frank Phillips had installed and the bathroom fixtures that were gold plated (I believe the real ones have been removed to a safe vault now.) Be sure to ask about the Phillip's butler when you visit the third floor! Only the house is open and not the carriage house. The tour should take less than an hour.
