Pratt County Historical Museum - Pratt, Kansas
The Pratt County Historical Museum in Pratt, Kansas is one of the largest and best curated history museums in Kansas. It is surprising that this museum is not more well known. The building was once a lumberyard and there are 24,000 sq. ft of well done exhibits with much better labeling and explanations of the artifacts than we often find at historical museums.
We think that most visitors will want to spend more than an hour and some people will want to spend 2 or 3 hours. As you circle through the large building, there is gallery after gallery, many of which offer as much as an entire museum somewhere else.
One of the largest exhibits is unique to the Pratt County Historical Museum. Pratt has hosted the Miss Kansas (America) Pageant since 1955 and the museum has multiple exhibits devoted to the Miss Kansas Pageant.
Although most of the museum consists of permanent exhibits, the Susan H. Hess Memorial Room features the talents and collections of Pratt County residents. It changes throughout the year.
