Attend an Event
saturday, december 2, 6:00-8:00pm
It's that special time of year when the whole museum lights up with happy holiday cheer!
An annual favorite at the Kansas Oil Museum, our Old-Fashioned Christmas follows the Christmas Parade and Tree Lighting with Main Street in downtown El Dorado. Join us for living history in our festively decorated boom town, ornament making and tree-trimming, hot cider and cookies, crafts for all ages, and of course the highlight of it all, SANTA CLAUS!
Our doors open for the event at 6:00, and Santa and Mrs. Claus will make their appearance at 6:30. The evening will also start with an indoor chili feed -- first come first served, so don't be late!
We are also happy to announce that the museum will be accepting donations of canned goods and children's toys now through December 16th, to be donated to local charities. Spread Christmas cheer this holiday season by giving back to others in our community!
december 1-23, 6:00-8:00pm
Want to give Santa and his elves a break this busy holiday season? Come out to the museum to take part in Santa's Workshop, where families can make simple Christmas crafts in the gallery to give to friends and loved ones. Paint an ornament, design Christmas cards, make a holiday bookmark, and then decorate a gift bag to pass on your creations to someone you care about!
