When the original Driller was erected in 1952, Tulsa was still considered the Oil Capital of the World. The Driller was meant as a temporary display for... More

While not the Statue of Liberty it is certainly a place of pride for Tulsa. My son and I were in town for a night and needed a landmark to capture the experience. This is easy to get to, right off the road. It was a few minutes off of Rt 66 where we ate. Some people were around eating... More

If you are visiting you should absolutely get your picture taken with the driller. Many people will ask you if you did, so you should :). It is near an expo center and you may luck out that there is something else going on there.

Any local has been by the Golden Driller countless times. It is easily approachable just west of the 21st and Yale area. It stands, open to the public 24/7. As a local I have seen it countless times and never take the time to appreciate it for what it is. However, people passing through regularly ask where it is, questions... More
