WARD COUNTY - One museum in Ward County is about to get much, much bigger.

At their meeting on Monday morning, Ward County Commissioners made a decision on the Rattlesnake Bomber Base Museum in Pyote which is in disrepair and its exhibits are at risk.

Those exhibits will now be moved to the Million Barrel Museum in nearby Monahans, which will then be called the Ward County Museum.

The museum will be run by the County and Commissioners are working with TXDOT to move some exhibits to the rest stop in Pyote.
