Hoisington History Museum is found along the Wetlands and Wildlife National Scenic Byway. Along the byway, you'll encounter landscapes and communities shaped by the powerful forces of motion and change. You're entering a region formed by ancient and ongoing geological movement, a land of stunning bird migrations, of wild winds, and weather, and of richly layered human history. The road moves through radiant wetlands exploding with wildlife; prairie vistas with immense blue skies; and seven rural communities shaped by nature and the entrepreneurial spirit. The inland salt marshes that anchor this drive, Cheyenne Bottoms and Quivira National Wildlife Refuge, are international birders treasures nestled in the heart of America and the Central Flyway.
