  • We couldn't go into the museum because they closed early. Going to have to come back to check it out on a more reliable of a day. Seemed like a very nice setup and I'm sure my Review Stars will change once I get to actually visit.
  • The guides in the museum are wonderful people! So nice, so kind and really helpful. You learn a lot here.
  • What a great experience! A lot of untold history, very well presented and an overall engaging story. Very affordable. The driving tour was quite cool as well, you can see the old wooden derricks and wooden pumps from back in the day that are still operational. There are even local folks manning the pumps who seemed friendly enough. Try to go in summer though because the outdoor exhibitions are just as interesting as the indoor museum itself. Well worth a trip our to this part of the world!
  • Nice little spot, that provides great insight into the origin of the oil industry and its pioneers.
  • This place has a lot of interesting history to see, it's well maintained and is a hidden gem that more people need to know about!
