Improvements made to the Museum during the winter hiatus include a new lighted, interactive display of McKean County made oilfield engines; a cut-a-way gas meter that show its inner workings, three large mural displays of pictures of the ”…culture that developed in the Bradford Oilfield.” Each mural presentation will feature pictures of the “people of the Bradford Oilfield” from the Early Years, The Water Flood Era, and The Modern Times. The museum display cases have been refitted with new LED lighting which adds brilliance and conserves energy.
Penn Brad Oil Museum is a Blue Star Museum and welcomes current service men and women and
their families to tour the museum free of charge throughout the season.
