We are a unique institution in being both home to the Thomas County Historical Society and the Kuska Collection. The historical society connection means that part of our mission is to tell the story of this region of the High Plains, from prehistoric times to the present. The Kuska Collection, an extensive and wide-ranging collection of dolls, glass, ceramics, clothing, paintings and much more assembled by Nellie Kuska, allows us to tell the story of collecting generally and of the unique aspects of different items in the collection specifically.A visit to Prairie Museum of Art & History represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Colby trip itinerary builder site to plot your vacation.

This was such a fun place to visit. We were in town visiting family who pretty much live next door, and decided check it out to kill time. The kids (ages 13 down to 2) loved seeing all the cool antiques. Especially the toys and tea sets. But the most favorite part was walking through the little house, school house and church.
