Motoring Monday: Prairie Museum of Art and History

Prairie Museum of Art and History in Colby covers 24 acres and is home to indoor and outdoor exhibits, many temporary exhibits and annual programs as well.
The world-class Kurska Collection contains more than 28,000 items featuring glass, coins, furniture, ceramics, toys, dolls, stamps, clocks, household items, tools, musical instruments, art, silver and jewelry.
Several buildings are on the site including a 1930’s farmstead, sod house, one-room school and the Lone Star Church. The Cooper Barn, the largest barn in Kansas, houses the exhibit "High and Dry: Agriculture on the High Plains" and features farm implements, vehicles and photographs illustrating the history of agriculture in the past 100 years.
Many of the exhibits have hands-on activities, and there are camps during the summer. For more information, go to
