Kansas Museum Of History

Award-winning exhibits on the state's colorful past fill the spacious main gallery at the Kansas Museum of History in Topeka.

Some of the attractions include a full-sized Cheyenne tipi, a fully stocked covered wagon ready for a trip on the Oregon Trail, a 1950s diner made by the Valentine Industries, and many other outstanding features. The centerpiece is a locomotive made in 1880 for the Atchison, Topeka, and Santa Fe Railroad.

We hope you enjoy our work.
