The museum provides a great glimpse into the oil and gas industry by combining some of the oldest artifacts in existence with current representations of how innovative the industry has become. This nationally acclaimed museum tells the fascinating tale of the oil and gas industry, including how riches derived from oil influenced West Virginia’s statehood and shaped the United States.  In recent years, the sector has seen major geopolitical shifts that have affected international relations, national policy, markets, and technology. The museum is committed to preserving the oil and gas trade’s heritage.
