Features
A "Main Street" gallery was completed in 1993 and contains six businesses typical of the early 1900's, featuring many artifacts that were used in early Junction City stores. Artistic and accurate clothing exhibits, a Victorian-era parlor and a Kansas farm kitchen of the 1920's are just some of the unique displays.  

The educational, interactive segments of the Plains Indian artifacts and pioneer farm implements displays are also very popular with visitors. After the renovation of the top floor was completed, a full-scale, country schoolroom and a Union Pacific depot ticket office and waiting room were opened.
