The Fick Fossil and History Museum in Oakley, Kansas shares a building with the community library. The Fick Museum is free (donations) and has a number of interesting large dinosaur fossils from Kansas, many old tools, mineral specimens, and shell & mineral folk art. Most of the exhibits have more info about who contributed them (looks like every one in town), then about the exhibits.
The Fick Museum's small gift shop offers rocks, minerals, fossils, books, and jewelry. Prices in the gift shop start at less than a quarter.
The Fick Fossil and History Museum is open seven days a week in summer, with shorter hours in winter. Call (785) 672-4839 for hours.
