If you are in Kilgore, Texas this is a must place to visit. the program is laid out to give everyone an working knowledge of the oil strike in eastern Texas. There very orientated for children, example the elevator to the center of the earth. There are also other special attractions.

I love this museum and have been there multible times. The museum takes you through the oil history of East Texas. The different exhibits are detailed and if you need more information there is always a helpful and very knowledgeable employees close to you.

Every time I have visitors from Europe the museum is a must to visit. And they LOVE it.

This museum is incredible. The exhibits are informative, and the mock-up town is awesome. Great movie. A must-see attraction.

I have been here multiple times and each time is as good as the last visit.

There are so many time period pieces to appreciate and the "mock" town of Kilgore during the boom is simply fantastic.

I love that you can actually be up close and personal to the exhibits as opposed to a roped off area where you have to stand 10 feet back to view. I am super impressed with the attention to detail.

Very nostalgic!!!
