Text Size: A A A


Nestled in rural Lambton County awaits an opportunity for visitors to take a glimpse into one of the world's most important resources… oil. See where and how the modern oil industry burst into being at this National Historic Site: Canada's First Oil Wells. The Oil Museum of Canada portrays Lambton County's significant oil story through preservation and presentation of artifacts, culture and history.

Today, working oil wells adjacent to the museum still trickle away in this Oil Heritage Conservation District… a unique pocket of history!
