While travelling through Kansas my wife and I had wanted to visit this museum as part of our genealogical research. While travelling on Interstate 70 east into Topeka, KS we took the Wanamaker Road (Exit 356) to SW 6th Ave (3rd exit). A very nice modern multi-building complex with plenty of parking sat a short distance down the road. The buildings included the "Kansas Center For Historical Research" as well as the "Kansas Museum of History". There was a cost of less than $20.00 for the two of us to enter the museum. A nice gift shop was located near the museum. The Museum of History turned out to be a wonderful experience. There were multiple rooms taking the visitors through different time periods of Kansas history. These early settlers were real pioneers. We soon realized how good we live our lives today. The museum would be a great way to spend an afternoon with children explaining how families lived early on. If we were to return to the area we would definitely revisit the museum.
