MONAHANS - A Monahans museum is about to get a lot bigger.

On January first, Ward County officials took ownership of the million barrel museum in town.

It's all part of a project for expansion.

The crumbling Rattlesnake Bomber Base Museum in nearby Pyote has closed down and the county is in the process of moving its artifacts into the Million Barrel Museum.

We're told once the expansion is complete, it will be renamed the Ward County Museum.
