Permian Basin Petroleum Museum

Southern, Texas

For over 35 years, the Petroleum Museum has shared the petroleum and energy story and its impact on our daily lives. The Museum offers an amazing journey through millions of years of history, including the vast sea that covered the Permian Basin 230 million years ago.

The 40,000 square feet of interactive exhibits cover all aspects of the petroleum industry. The Permian Basin Petroleum Museum celebrated the opening of its new petroleum exhibits on April 2, 2016. This opening marked the conclusion of an $18 million renovation.

From interactives to immersive environments to game-based learning experiences, the 15,000 square feet of exhibit space will be sure to entertain guests of all ages. In addition to telling the petroleum and energy story of the Permian Basin, the Museum hopes to inspire young visitors to pursue careers in the petroleum and energy sciences.
