  • The museum is very interesting. We learned a lot about crude oil, petrol and how they drilled for oil in Wietze. We booked a guided tour beforehand and it was so worth it! Our guide Peter Lindner...  more »

  • This was fascinating. Real rigs out the back. Real nodding donkeys, that you can switch on and watch them operate. It's about 20 minutes drive from Celle, taxi cost €40. There's no cafe. There are toilets. There's a small group indoor part, but the best and largest section is outside, open to the elements. There isn't any shelter if it rains. There's no point in buying the guide - go through the indoor section on the right, wander through to the end and out the door on the left. Follow the path, and note that all the white signs in German flip over, with English on the other side. And you are allowed to operate the pumps (green electrical switches). I didn't know you were allowed to, but couldn't resist pressing, and then hurriedly shut it down in case anyone noticed. But saw that you were encouraged to switch them on on a later sign. Lots of old drilling tools and drill pipe and work over rigs too.
  • It’s nice place. Would have loved to get a English tour guide. Nonetheless it’s worth visit.
