It was a bit corporate, but there were interesting facts that I learned while there. I did not know that they helped invent the hoola hoop. That was a fun one. Also some interesting historical pieces and oil machinery equipment on display.

We enjoyed our visit to the museum which is well done and has lots of historical information as well as a great deal of memorabilia. Our tour would have been even better if we had been able to have a guided tour.
