  • Extensive displays of Barton County History going back to BC. Outside buildings also have wonderful displays inside of them. The two ladies inside were very knowledgeable and very helpful.

  • This is a nice museum which you can visit for a very reasonable $4 per person. It doesn't go into extreme depth on any particular topic or era, but it does give you a fun look at relics from Barton County's past. If you are interested in learning a bit more about this area, it's worth a visit. Probably will take you 1 to 2 hours to see everything.
  • Thanks Google Map for showing this place, got a good lesson on the interesting history.
