Subir Raha Oil Museum is in Dehradun, where you can learn about the black gold that powers our world.
It’s located in the Tel Bhawan building on the Oil and Natural Gas Corporation premises, so you know you’re getting the real deal.
The museum is named after the ex-chairman and MD of ONGC, Subir Raha. From samples of crude oil to flow charts explaining their properties, this museum has it all. It’s like a crash course in everything oil-related!
You’ll be taken through the different stages of the oil and gas value chain, and learn about the history of petroleum in India. And if you’re wondering how fossil fuels are conserved, the museum has got you covered there too.
But what really sets this museum apart are the miniature working models that demonstrate the process of extracting oil from the earth. They even have key tools like pipes and drill bits on display. And let’s not forget the Foucault pendulum – a device to show the Earth’s rotation that’s a popular display in almost all science museums across the world.
If you want a more immersive experience, head to the audio-visual room where you can learn about India’s oil industry and the journey of ONGC. And if you’re feeling inspired, there’s even a souvenir shop where you can take a piece of the museum home with you.
But wait, there’s more! Outside the museum, you can see some pretty cool things too. There’s a sucker rod pump, blowout preventers, and more. And all for the low, low price of just Rs. 10. That’s right, for less than the cost of a cup of chai, you can become an oil expert.
The museum is open every day from 10 am to 5 pm, except on Saturdays and Sundays when it’s closed. So, if you’re ever in Dehradun and want to learn about the industry that keeps the world moving, come check out the Subir Raha Oil Museum. It’s the perfect blend of education and entertainment – just like crude oil and gasoline!
