Why is Reno County such a great place to live? Is it….because of its really fascinating history? Is it……because of the unique and interesting people that used to live there long before you? It is….the interesting heritage? If you answered “all of the above” – you did a pretty good job!
Reno County Museum features five exhibit galleries where you can learn all about Reno, the people that used to live there, how they lived, what their culture was like, and their rich traditions and heritages – some which have continued to this day, and some that haven’t.
There is a fascinating and informative research library where you can read about the past, and also see images (see if you can recognize anything!)
There is also Oodleplex – a fun and creative children’s play area where encourages kids to use their imaginations! Oodleplex is based on traditional and interesting pioneer themes, where kids can play and create in the one room school house, a fun costume shop, a general store, a fascinating Native American setting and lots of other really fun set ups to create and imagine in. This area is geared towards kids aged 2 – 10 years of age.
Keep an eye out for some fun programs that are held across the year too, including the super delicious annual Ice Cream Social, all the way through to more formal education programs.
The exhibitions are often temporary so there will always be an excuse to go back!
