The Mennonite Heritage Museum in Goessel, Kansas is part of a museum complex of 8 buildings established to preserve the artifacts from early Mennonite households, farms, schools, churches and Bethesda Mennonite hospital.

The Mennonite Heritage Museum tells the story of the Mennonite families who left Russia for religious freedom in 1874 and chose the Kansas plains for their new home. A museum store offers a variety of ethnic cookbooks, local history books, Mennonite history books, wheat weaving and other handmade arts and crafts.

Although someone could spend most of a day reading and appreciating all of the Mennonite museum complex, I think a typical visit to the Mennonite Heritage Museum will spend an hour to an hour and a half.
