About the Texas Energy Museum:
Located in Beaumont's Downtown historic district, the Texas Energy Museum explores the history of the petrochemical industry. The oil boom started in Beaumont in 1901 with the Spindletop gusher, an event that is a major focus of the museum.

The museum uses animatronics to tell the story of several generations of an oil-field family. It also features exhibits detailing how oil and other petrochemical products are transformed into the everyday fuels and products used by Americans everywhere.

The geology of oil is another big focus of the Texas Energy Museum.

A small admission fee is charged. Hours for the Texas Energy Museum are 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and 1-5 p.m. on Sundays.
