Very interesting and Free!

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.

This small museum is packed full of history. Don't let the size fool you. There is a lot to see. A lot of it is in chronological order and is a great self paced walk through trip. You won't be disappointed if you are interested in the history of Conoco.

It had everything from office equipment, laboratory, and field equipment from the late 1890s. It was a very enjoyable surprise. The... More

I found this museum very interesting. I haven't been to a museum that shows you the history of a major oil/gas company. There was a lot of history packed into such a small museum. I really enjoyed touring the Conoco Museum.

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.
