romp2020The mission of the Rural Oklahoma Museum of Poetry is to bring poetry and people together, to encourage wordplay and literacy and to provide a space where everyone can have an experience of poetry.

EXCITING NEWS! Our museum will soon be re-locating to a larger, more accessible space in downtown Locust Grove at 416 E. Main. Follow us on Facebook to keep apprised of the details of our move and new exhibition.

The museum is open dawn to dusk every day, until Nov. 30, 2020, when it will close to start a move to town and a new location. Tentative new opening date is March 20, 2021.
