The Oklahoma Military Academy (OMA) Museum tells the story of the more than 10,000 cadets who attended OMA from 1919 to 1971.
The museum collects, preserves, and exhibits items relevant to the school’s history. OMA created a proud heritage having served the state and nation for 52 years. More than 2,500 OMA graduates served in the United States Armed Forces in World War II, the Korean War, and the Vietnam conflict. More than 100 OMA cadets gave their lives for their country.
In its day, OMA was hailed as the West Point of the Southwest. In 1971, in response to the growing educational needs of a rapidly developing technological and industrial economy, the Oklahoma Legislature replaced OMA with Claremore Junior College, which further evolved into the institution it is today, Rogers State University. The Oklahoma Military Academy Museum pays tribute to the young men who attended this great institution.
The Oklahoma Military Academy Museum is located on the Rogers State University campus at 1701 W. Will Rogers Blvd. in Claremore, Oklahoma.
The Will Rogers Memorial is located across the street.
