Welcome to the Smoky Hill Museum
Each time you visit the Smoky Hill Museum, a new story inspires you. From animal paths to Indian trails to interstate highways, Salina is the Crossroads of the Heartland. The Smoky Hill Museum's galleries and educational displays put you at the heart of how Salina came to be, what it is becoming today, and how you play a part in that story.
Family and kid-friendly interactives, changing exhibits, and fun family activities are among the Museum's highlights - all free of charge. The Museum Store offers Kansas cards, wheat weaving, specialty-food items, toys and more.
Our Wonderful Sponsors
Special thanks go to our exhibit and case sponsors. The Museum is able to continue its strong exhibits and educational programming through their generosity. Interested in sponsoring an exhibit? Contact Kay Quinn at email@example.com.
