  • OMG, this is so cool! Found this place on the website for the "8 wonders of Kansas", along with the Monument Rocks, and I am so glad we stopped. What an interesting museum/exhibit/attraction. And...  more »
  • Much much cooler than we were expecting when we first heard about it. The museum is up-to-date with excellent exhibits and informative displays. The well is big, really big. For an added treat we rode around on a bicycle built for two out front. Great time for all of us in the family!
  • You have to Stop! If nothing else just to see what the town went through when they got hit with an F5 tornado. As they say, pictures tell the story. It's Amazing to see how they recovered and continue to move on. And the Big Well it self. WOW, to see it, and think, was dug by hand. Gift shop was great. And BIG thank you to the young man who chase us down as we we're driving away, to give us an item we purchased, but had left on the counter.
