Explore 650 feet below the earth's surface inside the salt mines of Strataca in Hutchinson. One of the original Kansas Sampler Foundation's "8 Wonders of Kansas," Strataca opened in May 2007 and features a double-decker elevator that plunges visitors to the depths of salt deposits. This museum experience is like none other, featuring mined areas, geographic formations, and exhibits that showcase artifacts left behind by miners from the last 85 years.
