Shawnee Indian Mission - Exhibits
Shawnee Indian Mission exhibits are featured on two floors in the east building and two floors in the north building. The west building is not open to the public at this time.
Begin your tour in the East Building, which includes our visitor center, store, and several exhibits. Discover the story of the Johnson family, Indian agents and missionaries, Kansas settlement, Bleeding Kansas, Overland trails, and the Civil War.
Exhibits in the North Building tell the story of the emigrant Indians in Kansas-—such as the Iowa, Kickapoo, Potawatomi, and Sac and Fox. Objects include woven baskets, beadwork, drums, and other folk art made from techniques passed down through generations of Kansans with American Indian ancestry.
