Petroleum Museum

Learn All About the Permian Basin Oil Industry
The Country Inn & Suites hotel in Midland, TX lies less than one mile from the Petroleum Museum, where you can interact with more than 40,000 square feet of informative and family-friendly displays. Explore hands-on exhibits or attend educational programs and events scheduled throughout the year.

The story of the largest industry in West Texas began 230 million years ago in a coral reef situated 30 feet below the surface of the Permian Sea. To trace the oil industry’s story to modern day, marvel at colorful minerals from various decades and millennia in the Mineral Gallery. Other fascinating artifacts include original drilling equipment and Midlands memorabilia from the 1930s. You can also learn about the laborers who endured the Texas heat to draw the oil from the Permian Basin in The Oil Patch display.

After your tour, fast-forward to the late 20th century by visiting the Chaparral Gallery. Jim Hall’s legendary 1965 Chaparral Cars crew changed the history of racing by using cars with light construction, fuel-efficient technology and aerodynamic wings. Due to their speed on the track, the team earned the name chaparral, which is Spanish for “roadrunner.” Before you head back to the hotel, visit the Tom Lovell gallery to view a collection of 14 paintings that help you visualize the Permian Basin.
