Learn about local high plains history and culture through exhibits like High Plains Journeys, Over Here, Over There, and High and Dry: Agriculture on the High Plains plus on-site historic buildings (1930s farm house; sod house; one-room school, country church, and the largest barn in Kansas). Connect with global art forms through the world-class Kuska collection of glass, ceramics, dolls, furniture and much more. Kids can learn about Kansas in the Kansas Kids Corner and interactive features throughout the museum. Enjoy a new art exhibit every six weeks in the Garvey Education Room.
