This museum was cool!! We were checking out what we could do on our way home from our vacation. We found a pamphlet in our hotel and said yes! We spent 3 hours here and only did the inside because a snow storm was coming and it was too cold to be outside. Recommend!

We enjoyed an afternoon at this museum. There are very interesting historical displays. Fine exhibits from a benefactor. There are out building you can go into. A church, an old home, and the largest barn in Kansas was moved to this site.

We were pleasantly surprised by this museum. It was really a gem. With excellent displays inside the main building and several out buildings to visit, it was a great way to spend a couple of hours in Colby. A much larger community would be justifiable proud of this museum.

We stopped in Colby for the night in our RV. I saw the sign for the museum and was hooked. I love museums and my husband goes along to please me. We parked our RV and spent at least an hour in the museum. It was too warm to do the outbuildings. We did the inside and talked with the volunteers. There is an excellent doll display and coin and button display. Everything was so well displayed. It must have taken a long time to put the areas together. It is not a big museum by any means but it was very enjoyable. They also have a room for genealogy research that you can use.

We had a group of 40 that visited this museum. It is a very interesting place and one that you could easily enjoy for more than 2 hours. Definitely worth your time.
