Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Having in worked in the petro-chemical field for a little over thirty years it was nice to see a very nice slide of history of refineries, Phillips and the Bartlesville. You know its going to be a good time, when you walk into the place and you meet a most fascinating woman, that worked for Phillips for fifty-five years. We chatted with her for about fifteen minutes. These are the people that make places interesting. The rest of the museum did not disappoint. My buddy and I were very impressed with the amount of information, the layout of the museum, the history, and the displays. I've been to a few other museums of major companies and this was on par with them, (S.C. Johnson Wax in Racine comes to mind). I missed seeing this place in February of 2021 due to its closing for Covid and wanted to come back, and I'm glad I did. I would recommend this to anyone even remotely interested in history and specifically the history of Phillips. I got to think if you've come to Bartlesville most like it was for Phillips or for the Frank Lloyd Wright Price Tower, and if that is the case, this stop is well worth the stop.

We came here not knowing much about Phillip’s history and were impressed with the excellent interpretive exhibits and videos which tell the story of Phillips Petroleum so well. This is a fun museum; we learned a lot about the remarkable history of this successful American company. Many historic artifacts also help tell the Phillip’s story. We spent an hour 15 minutes in the free museum and 10 minutes in the gift shop to buy a cool retro looking t-shirt. High recommend on this neat museum.

Until visiting Bartlesville, I hadn't realized the history of how some oil companies changed/transformed/evolved America is every conceivable way--even with their amateur basketball team having a .909 winning percentage and heading over to the Olympics! Fascinating history of how a company that we now largely forget about has had a tremendous force in our daily lives.

This unique and specialized museum has more to offer than first meets the eye. I had no idea how much Phillips 66 influenced not just the oil industry but created so many of the materials we take for granted today. The volunteer at the desk was full of information and was able to tell us so much additional information. The museum is well organized and was quite interesting.

This is the type of surprises that I like. Passing thru Bartlesville we drove by and noticed the museum. Stope in and it was a great stop. I learned a lot about Phillips how it became Phillips 66. Due to COVID, we have the museum to our selves. Not to mention, it was free. IT was well worth the stop.

This was way cooler then we even thought it would be and even kept the attention of the 3 pre teen boy’s. For a free attraction this is a must see!!

Thanks to the management and employees of Conoco/ Phillips 66 for maintaining and supporting this outstanding museum. You will be amazed at what the employees of Phillips 66 have created over the decades. This a great American Story. 15,000 patents! Their work products are in so many other products that we all use daily.

This museum naturally focuses on the development of the Phillip’s 66 Petroleum company—merged with Conoco in 2002. There are many related displays on two floors, as well as an introductory movie.
