We visited the museum with only 1 hour to go through it, and we made it - I would allow a little more time if you go. The exhibits were great and very informative. Since my husband is in the same business, we really enjoyed our visit.

Want to know all about Phillips 66 and the founder, Frank Phillips. This is the place! A well done and informative museum about this important man and his company's role in the petroleum industry. It's free! Catch the 10 minute or so film and then begin your stroll through the history and inventions of Phillips Petroleum. The brand "Phillips 66"... More

Three retired Phillips employees were serving as docents. One had served in WWII and had secured over 70 patents while employed at Phillips. The exhibits are very well done and we learned so many things about Phillips we hadn't known before.

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

A totally free museum in the center of this historic town makes for must visit if you are in the area. Review the history of the oil company and how it put Bartlesville on the Oklahoma map. Look at the early wildcat oil producers and how they drilled for oil and brought it to market. A fascinating couple of hours... 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.
