  • Loved the 105 counties and 105 stories. Just wished we'd come earlier in the day. Didn't have time for the rest of the museum, but come on good reports that it's an awesome collection. The gift shop was worth a look about as well. We will return another day!!
  • Great place to learn about Kansas history. Have been here with school field trips as well as a family outing. The kids enjoy it and do not get too bored too fast. There is a play area in the lobby where kids can dress up and learn more hands on 🙂 Prices are fair and the gift shop has nice items as well as local honey and more. Check out their events hosted and go see the amazing history of our area!
