Immerse yourself in the rich tapestry of history and heritage in the heart of Kansas, where an unforgettable RV camping experience awaits you at a remarkable museum. Spread over 20,000 square feet, this destination invites you to explore six rooms brimming with unique memorabilia, offering a fascinating glimpse into the past. Perfect for enthusiasts of history and culture, this museum not only serves as a portal to another time but also stands as a beacon for RV camping. Located in a picturesque town that takes pride in its community spirit, RV campers will find themselves surrounded by a variety of outdoor activities. From a city-run campground to lush public parks, there's ample space for relaxation and recreation. Pet lovers will be thrilled with the dedicated dog park, while sports enthusiasts can indulge in disk/frisbee golf or enjoy a round at the nearby golf course. Plus, as an AVA Walking Club location, guests have the unique opportunity to embark on a 5k or 10k walk, perfect for those looking to stretch their legs and soak in the scenic beauty of the area. Staying connected and informed is easy, as guests are encouraged to check the museum's Facebook page for the latest updates, including exciting happenings at the museum and weather-related news that might influence your stay. Planning your RV camping experience is seamless; simply use the Harvest Host "Request A Stay" feature to secure your reservation. Please note that reservations should be made during business hours, with at least one business day's notice, ensuring a smooth arrival process. For those planning to arrive on Sunday, please note the museum closes at 4:00 p.m. and remains closed on Mondays, making early arrivals essential. Emphasizing a community feel, the museum welcomes guests to linger after their travels, inviting them to say "Hello" and share in the joy of discovery. Whether it's the allure of exploring historical exhibits or the appeal of nearby outdoor activities, this museum provides a perfect backdrop to a memorable RV camping trip.
