McKenzie County Heritage Park & ND Oil Museum

The pioneering spirit runs strong in McKenzie County, and we are honored to be stewards of that heritage. We invite you to explore McKenzie County‘s rich history, from prehistoric to farming and ranching to modern day oil exploration. Step back in time exploring buildings and artifacts from the great “Island Empire”, the last and largest county in the state of North Dakota to be settled. Discover more about the petroleum industry and its history and its future here, including a to-scale replica of a drilling and work-over rig. It is always free to visit, but donations are appreciated! We can’t wait to share the stories of McKenzie County with you!
