“Unexpectedly surprisingly interesting exhibits”
Review of High Plains Museum

High Plains Museum
Ranked #2 of 4 things to do in Goodland
Attraction details
Reviewed February 3, 2012

We were not specifically looking to visit this place. But it was a good find.

The entry fee was either non-existent, very low or by donation. I forget which. Whatever way, just drop in and have a look.

For a small museum, it offers enough to interest young and old. The exhibits feature sound, movement and interactivity. Including moving the parts of the first helicopter. That was a lot of fun for me.

This little museum featured a quilt show which was a delightful surprise to my mom and me. It was our first stop on on weekend getaway to Goodland, and we are so glad we went here first. The museum itself is small and will only take about an hour or less to see. The helicopter replica is a highlight, as well as learning some interesting history about the town and county, and its people.
But, after seeing the museum we had lots of ideas for other things to see and do in the area. Make sure to get a driving tour brochure for the Arikaree Breaks and go see them, they are so worth it!
The gift shop has a few local items, and the postcards are just 25 cents. By the way, the musuem is free. A $3 suggested donation can be given at the entrance.

Exceeded our expectations! The replica of the first helicopter, and the reproductions of the mud hut and beauty shop were our favorite displays. There was even a little gift shop and a helpful museum worker. Call 785-890-4595 for hours.
