A 90-second descent on a double-decked elevator will take you 650 feet below the Kansas Prairie! The historical, geological, and cultural story of salt comes to life through a series of displays. A special Museum gallery illustrates the Underground Vaults facility and includes an on-going exhibit of actual costumes worn in movies such as Mr. Freeze and Batman, James Dean's shirt from Giant, Agent Smith from Matrix, and the Snowman from Jack Frost.
