“Underwhelming for family with kids but interesting for older adults”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2012 via mobile

We just left the museum after reading online that it was a fun place to take kids. We have a 3 year old who loves trains and tractors and a ten month old also. We walked into a very empty museum where we were greeted by an 8$ admission fee per adult. Sorry but i think this is ridiculous bc it is a self tour of antique equipment that you cant touch. There was no mention also that there was no train in sight. Only a very old track and closed "depot". Very disappointing and eight dollars per person was ridiculous. It would be interesting if you are an adult that is interested in antiques.

“Good If You Are Interested in the History of Agriculture”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2012

My parents both grew up on farms and really enjoyed this attraction and reminisced about their childhoods as we walked through the exhibits. It was a Saturday and we pretty much had the place to ourselves as everyone else was attending the Renaissance Fair next door. My young daughter however was quite bored as the mini train was not operating that day.

“Historical & Agricultural Fun”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2012

We spent most of an afternoon wandering through the Center & Hall of Fame. My family was in town and it was a great way to see farm implements of years gone by.

“Interesting out of the way muesem”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2012

Been here a couple of times. They have a small train set up to ride on. Old fashioned small town setup with period clothing, tools, and goods for sale. Interesting but will only take up a couple hours. Just down the road from Kansas Speedway
