  • For a few bucks you get an amazing piece of history and not only history but a study of many innovations that occurred In the early 1900s. No crowds and great staff!  more »
  • If you’re ever wanting to get a little history of the “oil boom” this is a great place to go! Staff was very friendly and so knowledgeable.  more »
  • 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.
