Visitors Information

As we consider appropriate responses to COVID-19, it is increasingly important to prioritize the health and well-being of our community. In an effort to take proactive precautions to protect our staff and the people we serve, the Petroleum Museum will be closed March 17 – April 5, 2020.

We invite you to walk through our outdoor Oil Patch exhibits behind the Museum and enjoy fresh air and the history of the petroleum industry while the inside exhibits are closed. While these actions are expected to be short-term, the Petroleum Museum will continue to review these dates as we continually evaluate circumstances and guidance from the CDC, DSHS and local health authorities.
