Plan Your Visit

Located along the banks of Oil Creek in scenic Venango County, Pennsylvania, Drake Well Museum and Park invites you to discover Pennsylvania petroleum—past and present.

  • Experience the sights and sounds of Pennsylvania's oil fields while exploring acres of indoor and outdoor exhibits.
  • Stop in the museum store and shop for books, souvenirs, and snacks.
  • And, while you're here, take advantage of our site's boundless recreational opportunities, including paved bike trails, delayed harvest fly fishing, modern picnic facilities, and hiking trails.
  • You may also want to spend some time at our satellite historic sites. Walk the quiet streets of Historic Pithole City—Pennsylvania's legendary oil boomtown—and learn about the world's oldest continuously producing oil well at McClintock Well #1.

We want you to make the most of your experience at Drake Well Museum and Park.
