    The Kansas Oil Museum tells the history of El Dorado and the history of oil drilling. Lots of little towns in Kansas have history museums but this is one of the best one's I have been to. There is even a 4 acre park out side with an oil boom town, oil rigs, and tanks to teach you about the oil business.
    There are models of oil machines in side that you can operate before you go out side and see the real things in full size.

    One of the oil rigs at the Kansas Oil Museum that you can see up close. You can go in the buildings and see the big machines and look at the variations in drills and pumps. There is even a cannon. My guide brochure told me the cannon was used to shoot holes in oil tanks on fire so the oil would spill out before the tank could explode.

    Coutts Memorial Museum of Art was established in this building on main street by an El Dorado attorney. I was not allowed to take photos in the building but let me tell you it is great.
    The museum is in an old bank building and seems more like a private collection than a museum. I am a fan of Frederic Remington and there are many works by him in the collection. The 'Western' art section with paintings of cowboys was my favorite part but there is some thing for every one in the museum.
