  • My parents took my sister and I here in the mid 70's. This June my husband and I visited. We both thoroughly enjoyed touring the museum, visiting the well itself (the gentlemen there was outstanding), walking the grounds to see various equipment and, of course, visiting the gift shop. This is a place that is great for all ages.
  • Incredible piece of American history. Museum is set up perfectly for all ages to enjoy and to learn. Highly recommend visiting - summer months when the engines are running outside would be the best time but even during the "off season" we enjoyed walking through the museum and learning about a vital piece of American history that gets glossed over by many.
