We loved this museum. The docent who greeted us was very friendly and informative. She went out of her way to accommodate us and even gave us a book about Mr. Marland. You have to visit this museum when you are in Ponca City.

This is a really great museum. It's free which makes it even better. They have a scavenger hunt for kids to complete and a prize bag at the end if they complete it.

Great museum in Ponca City. The young docent was more than helpful in providing a local Flair. Great information on the Oklahoma oil industry and on Conoco If a person has an hour or two to spend well worth the time Rain or shine.

Very informative staff, excellent source of historical information, civil exhibits. It's worth the side trip. Only takes a couple hours if you look around and chat with the ladies running the place.
