Very well done, great films and displays. Very informative about the history of the area and the oil and gas business and future exploration and the research the company does.

This museum is very well put together. You get to explore Phillips Co. from the very beginning with Frank Phillips to the present day and glimpses into the future. The displays are eye catching and engrossing at times. A good outing for all to help learn the history of Bartlesville and the company.

Very nicely done presentation. Artifacts, movies and displays showcased the history and accomplishments of a great US company. Great that admission was free and the ladies that greeted us at the door were very sweet. Parking was free as well. Nice places to eat nearby,

Learning about a petroleum company may not sound very exciting, but this museum is really interesting! It tells the history of Phillips 66, of course, but covers areas of gas and oil production that I've never thought about, such as problems in drilling in the North Sea. I found the history of their gas stations interesting, as well as the... More

A nice history of the Phillips 66 Petroleum. The place is clean and nicely laid out. It is surprising all of the development of things they were into and not just gasoline. There is NO ADMISSION FEE, so those on a tight budget can enjoy also. No souvenir shop, just the pictures and memories.

The Energy Companies get lots of flak from the public. This is a state of the art museum that teaches you about the history of the petroleum industry in Oklahoma. My dad worked for the company when I was a kid and it brought back tons of memories.
