A well-spent dollar (per person) for a look around some artefacts giving a feel for what life was like around the time of oil being found here. Worth a stop if you're travelling along I-10.

We stopped here on our way back to Houston from San Antonio. We didn't expect much, but enjoyed reading about the history of this small town. The museum is free and is located in an old store. Loved all of the old pictures!
