Devon Energy Oil and Gas Park

Help us rebuild

When entering the campus of the Oklahoma History Center, the damage to the Oil and Gas Park outdoor exhibit becomes immediately evident. In 2017 a severe thunderstorm caused thousands of dollars of damage to one of our most precious exhibits.

Due to budget cuts (48 percent since 2009) we are unable to clean up the area or rebuild these artifacts. Your tax-deductible donation will make it possible to complete this work. Please click the Donate now button and type “Oil Park” in the “Direct my donation to...” field. We appreciate your generosity!

The story of oil and gas exploration and discovery is a tale of risk, innovation, fortunes won and lost, spectacular successes, and dramatic challenges. The Devon Energy Oil and Gas Exploration Park at the Oklahoma History Center interprets some of the technology that is part of the fascinating history of Oklahoma’s oil industry. Technological innovations in Oklahoma oil fields revolutionized petroleum production worldwide and greatly expanded the industry.

The Devon Energy Oil and Gas Park explores the drilling, production, and transportation phases of the Oklahoma oil and gas industry. Much of the equipment located in the park was donated to the Oklahoma Historical Society in the mid-1960s in an effort to begin the Mid-Continent Oil Museum. Oklahoma oil fields are part of the huge Mid-Continent Oil Region, which stretches from central Texas, across Oklahoma, to eastern Kansas.
