  • Most local history museums tend to be somewhat boring, but I was pleasantly surprised with this one. They do a really good job of using artifacts to tell some of Salina's history. Plus, I really enjoy...  more »

  • Well for starters I loved this place because it always Is changing so I always look at something new the little pop quiz game in the back is great and I am very exited for the new exhibit where the lab used to be and overall it's a great place to go to on a daily basis because there is first Thursdays when you can get snacks and have fun there you can also go anyday and pick a section to learn about because there is so much to do and it's all FREE which is amazing as it is so to say that it is a free and great museum is saying something you should definitely visit this place when you have the chance
  • Going through changes, can't wait for the new stuff, the last go around was awesome!
  • This is a great museum for kids. We had 3 with us, aged 12, 10, and 8, and they really enjoyed themselves. To get the full experience, you have to stop at the front desk and pick up the scavenger hunt (different ones for different ages), and you've got to spend some time in "the lab" working on solving the mysteries. The scavenger hunt has things to find throughout the museum, and keeps the kids looking and reading. The "lab" area is really wonderful, too. I don't remember the exact name of this exhibit, but kids work on "mysteries" where they go to different stations, observe/read, and answer questions to solve. Someone has put some time into this, and we could have spent a good hour just in that spot. In the end, the kids also received little prizes for completing the scavenger hunt. Really cool
  • its okay kinda boring
