  • Great look at Africa from the view point of OSA and Martin Johnson. Grandkids love the animal and tribesmen displays. Very well done. Unusual items in gift shop. Well worth the trip.  more »

  • I have never had a problem when I come here, it is always quiet, maintained along with well trained workers doing everything possible to satisfy the quests
  • A hidden gem in remote Chanute, Kansas, the Safari Museum chronicles the travels of Martin and Osa Johnson, the pioneers in adventure film making 80 years before the Discovery Channel existed. Their African and Polynesian mask collection is bar none the greatest I've seen.
  • Hidden gem in small town Kansas.
  • When I was a kid, I read Osa's book on their adventures and have been a big fan for a lot of years. The museum was a great view into some of the artifacts that have been collected, but more so the videos and movies they shot of their life on safari. I wouldn't spend all day looking at this museum, but an hour or two is about perfect. Expect to see a lot of masks and African artifacts, but also a small bit about another famous lady that was a mountain climber. Worth the time and money and thanks to the great staff that made my trip enjoyable!
  • This is Actually very VERY Awesome to see.
