At a stunning height of 76 feet, The Golden Driller is a monument is a truly inspiring sight to behold. Although this giant has watched over the Tulsa Expo Center from its current site since 1966, it was originally built in 1953 for the International Petroleum Exposition. The monument depicts an oil worker standing tall besides an oil derrick, and is the fourth tallest statue in the entire country. While the Golden Driller continues to serve as a testament to the dedication of all those who have made their mark in the Petroleum industry, it has also come to be a popular tourist attraction that offers a rather unique photo opportunity. The Golden Driller has been erected just outside the Tulsa Expo Center and is clearly visible as you drive along East 21st Street.
