I was unimpressed by the layout of the museum and found it incredibly dull. The first oil well was covered with discarded food wrappers and drinks bottles etc. I would not bother to visit it again.

“Well worth a visit”
Reviewed December 12, 2013

Very interesting place to visit although it is not open every day. Many details and artifacts are on display and shows the history of the first discovery of oil up to the present day. Only drawback we found was that when we finally found the washrooms they were locked and we could not find anybody to open them.
