Originally installed in 1986, The Panhandle Petroleum Story exhibit in the Don D. Harrington Petroleum Wing tells the story of the petroleum industry and its pioneers in the Texas Panhandle. Now, for the first time, the museum will update the existing 16,000 square feet of exhibition space. Construction is expected to begin in early 2015.
Located on the campus of West Texas A&M University, the Panhandle-Plains Historical Museum is the largest history museum in Texas, with more than 285,000 square feet-and over two million artifacts-dedicated to preserving this areas past. PPHM offers visitors a chance to step into panhandle history with special exhibits, a permanent collection, Pioneer Town, cell phone tours, educational tours and special events.
