The Marquette Museum and Range School Museum anchor a museum complex at one end of the Washington Street Historic District in Marquette, Kansas. The Marquette Museum building was built in 1910 and originally housed a library, meeting hall, and gymnasium. It was later the Marquette Post Office and then the City Hall, but since 1994 it houses the Marquette Historical Society Museum.
The District 15 Range School Museum is next door in a 1906 one room school house that was originally located 9 miles northwest of Marquette, and moved to the museum complex in 1987.
