Drake Well Museum and Park Presents
Something More Saturdays: Oil Past and Present

On Saturday, August 8, Drake Well Museum and Park and Friends of Drake Well, Inc. will present the eighth installment of Something More Saturdays, a monthly program offering visitors unique and entertaining learning experiences not included in a typical visit to the museum. Scheduled from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. on the second Saturday of every month, Something More Saturday programs are included in the museum’s regular admission fees. Families will be able to take advantage of the program’s Special Family Admission Rate, up to 2 adults and 3 children for only $20.00.

In celebration of Titusville’s annual Oil Festival, August’s Something More Saturday will focus on oil past and present. Visitors will have the opportunity to compare 19th century oil field technology to that used by the industry today. The program will feature images and videos of modern petroleum industry equipment at work as well as a special perforating gun display by Hunting, a world leader in the manufacture and distribution of products that enable the extraction of oil and natural gas. A representative from Hunting will be on hand to explain the company’s technology and answer questions.

Located off Route 8 south of Titusville, Drake Well Museum and Park is open year round. Summer and Fall hours are Tuesday through Saturday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Sunday from noon to 5:00 p.m. Drake Well Museum and Park is administered by the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission in partnership with Friends of Drake Well, Inc. and is part of the Pennsylvania Trails of History® (www.PATrailsofHistory.com).
