Louisiana State Oil & Gas Museum


Located in aptly-named Oil City, the Louisiana State Oil and Gas Museum interprets the fascinating drama of Louisiana’s early oil industry history though photographs, films and life-size dioramas. This part of Louisiana, of course, was built on the oil and gas industry and visitors interested in the technical aspects of oil field work will find the museum particularly appealing. Across the street and next to the old train depot, an interesting collection of machinery, rigs and equipment further illustrate the character of oil and gas production.
