Walk around the port of Barrancabermeja and the importance of the oil industry becomes clear when you see the dozens of oil rigs that line the coast and the statue of Christ dedicated to oil. The Oil Museum (Museo del PetrÃ³leo) gives a concrete idea about the city with the largest oil refinery in the country, the history of oil and the current progress of the oil industry.
Look for the museum on the road to the center of Barrancabermeja, about 15 minutes out of town and right near where the crude oil refining process begins.
