Golden Driller

4145 East 21st Street
Expo Square
Tulsa, OK 74114

Tulsa's Golden Driller towers above the Expo Center and watches over the tens of thousands of visitors to Expo Square annually.

The Golden Driller was originally introduced to Tulsa at the height of the oil boom in the mid-1900s.  He was a symbol of the annual International Oil Exposition held at the time on the Tulsa County Fairgrounds.
The current Golden Driller was erected and dedicated in the spring of 1966.  He stands 76 feet tall and weighs a hefty 43,500 pounds, making him one of the tallest statues in the United States!
Occasionally, the Golden Driller dons a piece of clothing touting an upcoming Tulsa event.  Any time of day, any day of the year, you can drive past the Expo Square and admire the towering statue, a symbol of Tulsa's decades of prosperity and growth.

The Golden Driller is located a short distance off historic Route 66 and is a Tulsa icon that should not be missed when visiting the city.
