  • This is a museum near the KU Union (and parking). A friend and I visited this place, after I heard about Comanche, General Custer's Horse (& only survivor of Little Big Horn for the US Calvery side...

  • I live in Lawrence and had been to this museum many times as a kid. We took our grandkids, and while it hadn’t changed a lot since my last visit, they absolutely loved it. The displays allowed them...

  • Large museum took us several hours to walk through. This was my second time and it was just as nice as the first. I would recommend starting on the bottom floor and making your way up. All was very interesting although if you do not have children the area above the main entrance is very skippable. My favorite is the top floor. I believe admission was $4 for children and $7 for adults which is a “donation” so I’m not sure if it’s required or not to be honest. Overall a great way to spend a day.
  • Seems like we've been going here since the beginning of time...not much has changed but the kids of all ages still love it! There was a museum staff member (I unfortunately did not catch her name) and she was very helpful and informative. A great experience!
