- Petroliana Oil and Gas Memorabilia Exhibit
The oil and gas industry has been an important part of American history, having fueled the country’s industrial expansion. One of the most visible aspects of the industry has been the memorabilia such as gas pumps, oil cans and signs which have dotted the American landscape since the beginning of the twentieth century. The Farmington Museum has an extensive collection of these cultural artifacts on display. This exhibit will be open through 2019.
