  • Great experience! I'm not a fan of reading history, but seeing it takes me to my child days! This place had so much to see and was surprisingly a really nice museum. My only regret is that I didn't have more time to just lounge around the museum to see and read everything. This museum had tons of stuff from an actual train to canons to tepees and if you can imagine it, it is probably there. It is a great to take the family and learn about the history of Kansas! Highly recommend this to everyone!
  • My daughter was married here tonight and it was beautiful and the staff was so helpful and kind. They were all fantastic and accommodating. It is a beautiful place for pictures and events.
  • Currently a fascinating exhibit on the life of a WWI and WWII soldier. Many exhibits covering all of Kansas history.
  • I've always grown up going to this museum and remember using the telephone lines and playing with them and always find something new every time I come here but the cost of admission pushes people away from this great place in Kansas history. Better Signage would draw more people in for sure if you were just driving by you'd never know where it was.
  • Lots to see. Our guide was very informative. Great class field trip.
