Kansas Day at the Museum - 2015 event
Hands-on activities! Performances! Demonstrations!
Kansas became a state on January 29, 1861! Join us as we explore the rich heritage of Kansas and commemorate its 154th birthday!
The special exhibit, The Great Soldier State: Kansas and the Civil War, tells the Kansas story of the Civil War. Join us on Kansas Day as we explore the role Kansas played in the Civil War, the impact the war had on Kansas even after it ended, and the experiences shared by Kansans in the mid-1800s.
