  • Big Brutus is Amazing! My 5 year old son loves Big Brutus. We have visited about 10 times and never get tired of it. The last time we were there I bought a Big Brutus T-shirt for my son. He wants to wear it all the time LOL. My husband and I also enjoy it immensely. I am so glad they preserved it. It's a sight to see.
  • This place is a really cool piece of Kansas history. They've got a lot of different mining equipment, and of course the centerpiece is the mighty Big Brutus. It's a little run down and the weathering is becoming evident, but with some donations this place could easily look almost brand new. If you're in this area for whatevet reason it's worth the stop!
  • Big Brutus is an interesting monument to the local history. It's really fun to crawl around and inside Big Brutus. I was a bit disappointed to learn that you cant climb up to the top of the shovel anymore, but you will still be blown away by the scale of the machine from the ground. It really is worth the visit to see such a huge piece of machinery.
  • If you like history or big machinery, you'll love Big Brutus. It is a neat experience. It isn't for everyone - don't expect every teenager to find it interesting. The size of this machine really can't be described it has to be experienced.
  • Cool $8.00 adults $5. 00 for kids
