This is a nice museum, run by the locals near the courthouse and downtown area it was in one on the first bank in town, and most of the bank's equipment and areas are still in tack form when it was built. Nice tour guide.

The "permanent" exhibits pay homage to the City and the area's fascinating history, particularly as related to the discovery of oil, and previous inhabitation by the Caddo Indians. New projects coming will enhance an already terrific museum. Kids love it; adults...More
