Adjacent to beautiful George Pyle Park, the Reno County Museum showcases a lovely courtyard, exhibits, programs and special events that tell the story of Reno County history.
Five indoor galleries depict the pioneer days to present day, including a permanent gallery that focuses on transportation. The transportation gallery sports a 1903 Model A Tonneau. Younger visitors have a fun time bringing the past to life at the "Ooodleplex", there they play storekeeper at an old-time general store, explore an Indian tepee and homestead in a recreated cabin from the early days of pioneers on the prairie. Outside on the museum's grounds, a claim house, outhouse, windmill, 1902 switch engine and 1954 caboose offer a further glimpse into the past.
Hours of Operation: Tues.-Sat. 9-5 p.m. Closed Sunday and Monday.
