Every visit to The Petroleum Museum is an opportunity to experience the fun side of science firsthand. Our spectacular exhibit wings offer remarkable insight into the specific and technological world around us, from the age when dinosaurs roamed the Permian Basin to the Wild Oil Boom in West Texas!

There are currently 3 acres and 11 historic buildings to tour and see how the true pioneers of this town built it from the ground up. There are numerous artifacts to see and stories to hear. Some of the artifacts on exhibit include stagecoach wagons, a blacksmith shop, antique craftsman equipment like band saws, fencing materials and cooking utensils…just to name a few. Also, currently in our Social Hall, a Vereins Kirche exhibit is on rotation.
