Petroleum Museum

You never know what gems you'll discover in your travels. And don't let "industry themed/sponsored" museums deter you. Face it, with a name like this...we might have skipped it altogether.

However, it was the only place in Midland, TX we could find an overnight stop (Thank you Harvest Hosts!) and while it's right on top of the Interstate, it had more than a vintage oil well to look at.

The Permian Basin Petroleum Museum has a wide range of exhibits and experiences that give a great look at the past,, present and future of energy development. Even if learning about the oil industry is not your cup of (Texas) tea, they also have some incredible minerals on display, an art gallery, and don't miss out on seeing the vintage Chaparral cars.

Take care, and who knows…As We Go, maybe we’ll see you on the road! Safe travels!
