The tour is only given at certain times but it is well worth the wait as Will Roger's led a very unique life and was someone to respect. House and grounds were also interesting but the tour makes it special.

Tour guide very friendly and well informed. Property is well restored and visitor friendly. Parking is abundant and easy to use. Car friendly. Film should not be missed. Signs for finding its location could be improved.
