Midland Airport Guide

There are over a dozen museums in Midland dealing with all aspects of its history. Almost all are worth several hours of your stay in Midland. The Permian Basin Petroleum Museum is a great place to start for it was the profits from this industry that paid for many of the other museums. For a wider range of information, try the Museum of the Southwest which has exhibits from nearly every aspect of the region. The Fredda Turner Children’s Museum is great fun for the little ones where they can play with many of the interactive exhibits and learn lots from them too.

Midland Info

Originally just a stopover on the rail journey from Fort Worth to Santa Fe, Midland was in the fortunate position of being in the centre of a huge oil find and immediately positioned itself as the centre for administration of the oil.

Oil is still an important part of the economy today but the wealth generated from it has been used to make Midland a centre for the development of emerging technologies.

Midland Trivia:
  • Midland was the home of former first lady Laura Bush
  • The city was founded as the midway point on the Fort Worth to El Paso rail line
  • It was originally called Midway Station upon its founding in 1881
  • It soon became the administrative centre for the newly discovered oil fields of west Texas
  • The very unusual situation of there being more jobs than people often occurs in the oil fields
