  • Pretty neat and educational. Glad to see they are finally doing some updates! Great place to visit if you've never been. Be sure to ride the elevator!
  • I liked it! Especially if I had time after studying at the library.
  • Way better than I expected! Pricing was under $40 for 4 adults and a child, the museum was a really good size and had lots of activities/interactive things to do. Very clean and the staff were above and beyond friendly. Gift shop was reasonably priced. This museum tells the history/story of the east texas oil boom and lets you walk around in a recreated version of a town during that time period. You can tell a lot of work & care went into this museum. There's a really cool elevator puppet show, lots of shops to walk in and out on your own to discover. There's also a neat little movie theater that actually has showing times for a movie about the oil boom. I would go again!
  • The price is fair and good place for the whole family..... JH
  • Great place to learn about your towns history and its educational for the kids
