Where are we going today?
History is a really fascinating subject, so why not head to a place where you can really re-live it, and imagine what it would have been like!
The Geary County Historical Society and Museums are a great way to spend the day with the family, as you transport back into the 1900s and learn what life was really like! Kids will be able to see and hear another time gone by, with all the activities and historic buildings.
Main Street is a great place to start, as there are a host of activities to participate in! You can shell corn, or even grind coffee in the historic homestead. Immerse yourself in culture when you hear Native American songs, as well as experience Native American dancing through the very cool QR codes in the Native American exhibit.
Have you ever wanted to tap Morse code? Now is your chance! Visit the telegraph to try out this old way of communicating, or step into the one room schoolhouse and experience how different school would have been over a century ago. Pretty different we imagine!
Keep an eye out for the fun events that are held at the Geary County Historical Museums, as they are great fun for the family, including seeing the century old printing press in action!
Let's not forget all about the fun scavenger hunts that are held, as well as the interactive exhibits!
Let the past come back to life at this fun and fascinating Junction City experience. With three floors of exhibits, as well as outdoor attractions, it's a family day out with a difference!
