CURRENT EXHIBITS

Dust Bowl 

The Dust Bowl exhibit covers the "Great Plains" area affected by the Dust Bowl. The viewer is introduced to the plains region and the wildlife occupying the area. Visitors can view displays on Native Americans, early cattle drives and ranching. They can learn about the opportunities that brought the settlers west and the development of the plains to rangeland and then agriculture and farming. Government involvement and the education of those using the lands, round out the exhibits. There are several hands-on aspects of the displays that help make this an enjoyable and educational part of the museum. This exhibit is currently open to the public but under development and construction.
