The University of Kansas Natural History Museum has just been named among the top natural history museums at a public university by Best College Reviews. The museum ranked fourth behind Harvard, Drexel and Yale.
Join us for a behind the scenes tour of this outstanding museum. Located in Dyche Hall on the campus of the University of Kansas, the museum is home to more than 9 million specimens of animals, plants and fossils, and 1.2 million archaeological artifacts including the horse Comanche, the only survivor on the U.S. Cavalry side of the Battle of the Little Bighorn. The museum also has extensive exhibits of plesiosaurs, mosasaurs, pterosaurs and other fossils from the Kansas Chalk. Our tour will be led by a museum curator and then you will have a short time to explore the museum on your own. We will then go out to dinner at the Free State Brewery and returning home by 7:00 p.m. Dinner is on your own. This is an adult tour, but children are welcome with an adult.
We’ll leaving library at 2:15 p.m., returning at 7:00 p.m.
