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 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.

Nice place to visit, usually closed when we get to town so lucky today. Lots to see, worth the stop. I actually enjoyed the toys, buttons and money drawers.

Very interesting displays inside. Outside are numerous buildings you can step into another era of one room living, one room schooling, the large barn just to name a few. Loved it!

I've been to Colby 3 times and the PMAH once. The most interesting feature is probably the building itself which somebody really put some thought into. I'm not an architect but it has a post-modern quality to it that oddly fits in. When I was...More
