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.

Very good museum that tells the history of the Phillips Oil Company, their products and other ventures. The museum is free and you can take pictures. They have a short film which gives a good overview of the company and then you wander through various displays, which have more information on items mentioned in the film. As many reviewers mention,... More

Not someplace that you would travel a long distance to see, but an interesting way to spend some time if you are in Bartlesville. I enjoyed seeing all the memorabilia and the insights into how gasoline was marketed before people became addicted to cars and gasoline. It is obviously a large puff piece for the Company and all the wonderful... More

I'm not really into Museum type things like this, but it was definitely worth my time! It was interactive and I enjoyed myself. It was free, so it was worth the $.
