This is a most interesting story. The Phillips were into all the facets of the oil industry and then some. Their vault is stacked w/ many hundreds of patents for many uses of the petroleum they produced. Plastic pipe, polyester fabric, etc. And their interest in early aviation was extensive. Their competition plane is hung in the gallery, on display.... More

Wonderful History of the early oil discoveries in Oklahoma and the creation of Phillips 66, still a major oil company today. It's right down town in the middle of Conoco/Phillips offices.

This mansion reeks of history and the glory days of the oil barons. Take a full day to go here and Frank Phillips country estate Woolaroc. My favorite is Frank's barber chair in his master bathroom.

this was a highlight of Bartlesville. Very well laid out museum that showed the personal and professional side of Frank Phillips and the Phillips' leadership. Price (free) is a bonus.

It only took me an hour to explore this interesting little museum dedicated to Phillips 66. There was a 10 minute movie to watch and a large amount of memorabilia, as well as a good history of the founders and the people who have made P66 what it is today. Very worthy of a visit.

Its hard to go wrong with a free museum. The museum was very interesting and told the history of the Phillips Oil Company. The people that work there are very friendly and go out of their way to make sure you have an enjoyable experience.

You cannot go wrong with a free look at history. I spent a solid 90 minutes looking at everything. I am not a "big oil" type person. But as a historical look at this company, it was cool. Enjoyed it. And the greeters are friendly.
