Dane G. Hansen Foundation

Students from western Kansas had the opportunity to visit the Kansas Museum of History's special exhibit, 150 Things I Love About Kansas, through the generosity of the Dane G. Hansen Foundation of Logan. Many of these students had never been to Topeka. During their visit they also has the opportunity to tour the Kansas State Capitol. The Hansen Foundation provided field trip subsidies to cover the cost of school buses in observance of the Kansas sesquicentennial in 2011. 

Dane G. Hansen was born in Logan. He joined his family in the mercantile business, but expanded into agriculture and oil. He had a personal interest in promoting education and helping young people to succeed. In his memory the Dane G. Hansen Foundation helps to support communities in northwest Kansas.

Interactives are always a big hit in the exhibit.








The Hansen Foundation also helped underwrite exhibits at Fort Hays State Historic Site in Hays. The exhibits feature interactive displays that tell the story of the frontier fort on the Smoky Hill Trail.
