The annual quilt show is still on exhibit! Come out and view the beautiful quilts that belong to community members.

On Thursday, September 1, the museum will close early at Noon due to a large Cross Country event that is being held in the Wyandotte County Park.  The entrances to the park and museum will be barricaded, so please plan accordingly. 

The museum will also be closed on Saturday, September 3-Monday September 5 for the Labor Day Holiday.  All Unified Government offices are closed in observation.  We will reopen on Tuesday the 6th at normal museum hours.

The museum will be closed this Saturday due to the Special Olympics Walk/Run that will be taking place in the Wyandotte County Park.  Due to the event, the entrances will be barricaded and access will be limited to participants of the charity event.  We will reopen on Monday, the 15th at our normal time of 9am.  Sorry for any inconveniences, but it is for a great cause!  For more information on the event taking place throughout the park, visit:

Our annual quilt show is currently in full swing and will be open to the public until September 30! We had so many entries this year that it is bursting out of the auditorium.  Thank you to everyone who participated!
