Drake Well museum is an educational museum with various artifacts from the time when oil was first discovered in Pennsylvania. The exhibits are well-constructed, and if you take the time to actually read the information listed with the artifacts, you will spend at least an hour in the museum, and you'll probably learn a lot! Admission in the winter is slightly less expensive than in the summer, but it's a lot more pleasant to be at the park in summer and autumn.
Drake Well does have a gift shop for those who want to purchase souvenirs or gifts. They sell books, toys, games, and clothing related specifically to Drake Well, as well as the general time period that oil was discovered (1800s). They also have snacks and knick-knacks. The shop is a bit small, but if you are looking for souvenirs, they do have a variety of nice items to purchase. If you do not purchase souvenirs here, it will be difficult to find items elsewhere in the area to represent your time at Drake Well, so if you do want something, make sure to stop at the gift shop!
What to pay: Most of the souvenirs are reasonably priced. There are a few expensive items, but if you want anything, it is unlikely that you'll find it anywhere else!
Favorite thing: Drake Well is the best place in Pennsylvania that I've seen to learn about the discovery of oil and how it affected Pennsylvania and then the world. Drake Well State Park is a nice park with a museum and various historical buildings and machinery related to the oil drilling. They offer guided tours during the summer, for those who want an in-depth look at what things were like in the days oil was first discovered!
