Visit Drake Well Museum and Park
In 1859 the Drake Well struck oil, launching an industry that has forever shaped our modern world.
Using orientation films, exhibits, operating oil field machinery, and historic buildings, Drake Well Museum and Park tells the story of the petroleum industry’s birth in Pennsylvania and its growth into the global enterprise it is today.
Visitors to the museum’s 240-acre site enjoy a variety of special events, educational programs, membership, volunteer, shopping, and recreational experiences.
