Very interesting and informative!

This is a great place to spend half a day. There is some really good Kansas history here. Organized very nicely, with very friendly and helpful staff. I loved it.

There is a lot to see here. The sod house ranks high with my kids as well as the area they have set up for the kids to learn lots of interesting Kansas facts. It has improved tremendously over the years. When it first started out it was rough but now it is a place where even locals enjoy going... More

There were historical displays from various eras so I could get the feeling of how my great grandmother lived back in 1870. Also, there is a genealogical department upstairs that was very helpful so that I know where she is buried now. Other information helped me to find some beautiful historical houses in the area, too

If you have an hour to spare this place is good inexpensive entertainment if your into history. They have four or five different displays ranging from Salina's milling roots to prairie living. There is no entry fee but they do have a spot for donations.

Located in the beautiful downtown former post office, this museum far exceeded my expectations. A good deal of thought and effort has resulted in exhibits showing the progression of Salina over the past 150 years. I availed myself to the very well-stocked gift shop that includes hundreds of books, locally-made snacks and gift cards, and plenty of nick-nacks to keep... More
