The Conoco Museum is a tribute to over 125 years of the famous energy company’s history and the global community that created it. Museum exhibitions outline the company’s beginnings as a kerosene distributor to its current status as a top energy corporation. 

Learn about the early years of founders E.W. Marland and Isaac Blake, see a replica of E.W.'s boardroom and listen to stories about the fascinating work of the seismic personnel known as Doodlebuggers. Stand in a replica research laboratory and enjoy a variety of interactive exhibits like the hands-on Fractionation Tower and the interactive Touraide game. Other featured artifacts include a 1914 Packard gas delivery truck, two horse-drawn wagons used to deliver kerosene, retro commercials from the 70s and 80s, plus a complete set of silver utensils from the Marland era. 

The Conoco Museum also celebrates the company’s origins in Ponca City. Visitors can learn about the city’s refinery, one of the oldest operating refineries in the United States, and view a computer-generative simulation of the refinery’s construction. Read through personal testimonies of current or previous Conoco employees on the Memory Wall. Guided tours are available, or experience the museum on your own.
