  • Hugh Howser of Calif Gold loved this place and did episodes on the museum, Taft, and surrounding area. The docents really give a flavor of what it was like. The transportation is a must see. The old pumping units, standard ends, are well exhibited. ALL this is located in the 5th largest oil field in the Unitsd States. So must to learn here. The town also has Fort Sutter replica to scale.
  • Very interesting place.
  • A fantastic Museum that deserves more attention
  • Excellent history of the oil industry. Lots of exhibits of original equipment.
  • Very interesting, there is a lot of history in those building
