This is a.an impressive, informative small museum chronicling the rise of the oil industry and Conoco in Ponca City. Very well done and definitely worth a visit.

I was in Ponca City with my kids and stopped by this museum. It was large, well laid out, and the docent was very friendly. She encouraged my kids with a "treasure hunt" and even a "secret doorway" out of the little theater. They ate this up. I have rarely seen museum people this good with kids. They, and I,... More

Free museum about the history of Conoco. Very clean, almost looks brand new. Good lighting so it is easy to read displays. Lots of nostalgia in displays. Interesting videos about how the logos came to be.

This relatively new museum (opened May 2007) is spacious, well laid out, has free off street parking, is ADA accessible, and is free. I knew nothing about the oil industry or E. W. Marland but decided to go and was so glad I did. There is an introductory film "Pioneering Spirit" and then you are on your own to travel... More

This is a nice addition to your day if you are already in the area. It is free and could occupy you for an hour or more.

Nice museum about The Continental Oil Company. Sponsored by ConocoPhillips. Free admission. Very friendly and informative lady working there. She recommended other local attractions that we really enjoyed and had not planned to see.

Very interesting and informative. We enjoyed learning the history of the Conoco company, the area around Ponca City, and the history of E.W. Marland and how he built (and lost) the company. He was way ahead of his time in how well he treated his employees, they had many benefits (such as medical insurance) that other companies did not have.

The Conoco Museum is a free museum right across the street from the Phillips 66 refinery in Ponco City. It is well worth stopping to see. It traces the history of the company from its founding. Because Conoco has such a long history, this effectively gives you a great overview of the oil industry in Oklahoma as well. Very interesting,... More
