Front Door GalleryDress-Up Room
For children (and children at heart), this room is where you can get hands on and create your own 'exhibit'. Check out a box of Legos from the front desk and build your own Kansas icon, such as a sunflower, a buffalo, or a bumblebee. The Museum may even leave your masterpiece on display for a while!
