  • Nice museum. Good local history exhibits. Nice old building. Friendly staff. They offer a wide range of family friendly activities. Great place to learn about Lawrence!
  • We thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The history was wonderfully presented. We were warmly greeted and given an brief history of the building which enhanced our tour. It truly gave you a glimpse of the history of Kansas, especially the section dedicated to the influx of newly freed slaves that came to the free state. As pointred out by our greeter, the building itself is a treasure to behold!
