Journey with Claude and Donnie as you stroll through the permanent exhibit Around the World. Browse colorful displays of handicrafts and arts from every corner of the earth. Experience famous sites and everyday places from around the world through video and slide programs based on the Stauth’s trips. The Stauths wanted the museum to go beyond the story of their personal travels. Continue your discoveries in the Special Exhibitions gallery featuring traveling exhibits from renowned national and international exhibit sources. Return again and again to learn about history, art, science, and more. Also featured is the Fry Wildlife Collection, one of Kansas’ most extensive collections of North American and exotic game animals, including former record-breaking specimens. This is a must see for all hunters, sportsmen, and conservationist. The newest addition to the museum is the Wall Western Collection exhibition that features 19 Frederic Remington authentic bronze reproductions, plus other famous Western bronzes. This extensive collection is the life-long passion of another Montezuma resident, Howard Wall. These world class permanent exhibitions and continuously changing traveling exhibits continue the Stauth’s tradition of bringing the world and its cultures to Montezuma and Kansas.
