  • This museum was very nice to visit. My father and I went and we ended up spending way more time there then we thought we would. They have a model of an old boomtown city and it was really cool to actually walk into the buildings and read the history. We definitely enjoyed ourselves. Highly recommend if you're looking for something inexpensive and fun to do in Beaumont.
  • Great place to learn about the oil industry!!! Quiet place to visit and enjoy the old town recreation.
