  • The museum has tons of artifacts and many informative displays. The building which is an actual replica of the original is amazing. A to scale steam engine that actually runs on certain days is...

  • I spent over 2 hours Here! I expected to be here 15 min.! I didn't expect such a comprehensive museum about the history of this place and of the larger oil industry. The nice docent in the working oil pumping station. Was very nice and informative. I was very pleasantly surprised. ( Use your GPS to get there. There is only one sign on Rt 27 and there are several turns along dirt and gravel roads.)
  • This museum is incredible. One of the best collection of oil, gas and industrial displays I have ever seen. So much to see, it really takes more than a day to see it all. The Drake well building contains the actual location of the first true oil well in the US. The Museum team are very passionate and knowledgeable. 1.5 hours north of Pittsburgh. Absolutely worth the drive!
