Monahans: Rattlesnake Bomber Base Museum

Rattlesnake Bomber Base Museum

The Rattlesnake Bomber Base Museum, relocated from Pyote to Monahans at the Million Barrel Museum, houses artifacts, photos, military uniforms, and part of the original base post office in a brand new state-of-the-art building adjacent to the 1928 Million Barrel. The museum preserves the legacy of the Rattlesnake Bomber Base and World War Two history in West Texas.
