Watch the latest news story about the Kansas Oil Museum's Advanced Learning program and our newest team member, "Albert"!

Welcome to the Kansas Oil Museum! All ages are invited to come and visit our large indoor exhibit hall and 10-acre outdoor area.

Indoors you will experience the story of:

  • The Kansas Flint Hills
  • Butler County, Kansas
  • The science of oil exploration and production.

Outdoors you will experience the story of:

  • Oil Field Equipment, restored and operated during special events and tours. See how "black gold" was (and is) extracted from deep within the earth, using this massive and powerful equipment.
  • Historic Oil Boom Town, furnished as if the town's inhabitants had never moved on. These oil boom towns operated as divisions of the oil companies, and were under the authority of company officials. Developed in response to oil strikes, these oil communities had their own stores, company offices, schools, and entertainment.

*During Inclement Weather the outdoor exhibits will not be open*
