  • Civil war stuff, 1930’s kitchen & old dentist room, mining part, war memorabilia, general store room, old beauty shop, just a bit of everything so you can see how life used to be. Old wagon, old fire ...  more »
  • For a small town, the people who put this museum together did a great job! Lots of interesting displays and information here. Route 66 thru Kansas is so short, it's good to find something like this.  more »
  • Excellent museum with artifacts and history regarding the area's involvement in the civil war. Many exhibits between the 1800's to now. Definitely worth an afternoon.
  • Traveling RT. 66 from Illinois. GREAT museum! Only had 1 hr till they closed, we thought it would be a quick stop. Stayed the full hour, could have easily spent 2 more! Wish I didn’t live 500 miles away. Will tell everyone I know about this gem.
