Peer through the bars of an unforgiving, iron, pioneer jail! Be amazed that 8 people really lived in a tiny two-room claim house! Imagine what the ride felt like on the 1929 Indian Ace motorcycle! Experience all this and more at the Reno County Museum, just one block from Hutchinson’s Main Street. Mysteries and fascination abound in the stories behind the artifacts on display in the museum’s five rotating exhibit galleries.
Kids have a blast “steering” the life-sized boat, trading in the general store, and trying on period clothes in the costume shop all in the Oodleplex, our interactive children’s area. The Oodleplex is recommended for children ages 2-12 and there is a $1 per child charge.
The museum has exciting, educational programs and guided tours for groups of all types when scheduled in advance. From “History of Reno County” to our one-of-kind, adults only “Naughty Napkins,” our programs are sure to please!
