The Pratt County Historical Museum Has Been Nominated for the wKREDA Tourism/Art/Culture Business of the Year. The Pratt County Historical Museum has over 21,000 square feet of artifacts and is one of the nicest museums in the state, especially for a community the size of Pratt. This year they were bequeathed a very rare and large native American collection of artifacts from Pratt and the surrounding area. 

About the Pratt County Historical Museum

The Pratt County Historical Museum has been active in the community since 1968. The museum draws visitors from across the country with hundreds of visitors a year. You can take yourself back in time to prehistoric fossils unearthed in Pratt Count and elsewhere, to artifacts left behind by several tribes of Indians who hunted along Turkey Creek and the Ninnescah River. You can walk the boardwalk of Main Street to see businesses of the nineteenth century or see the tools, cookware, furniture, clothing, quilts, handwork and toys used over a period of years from the 1870’s to the present.

They are a valuable asset to Pratt County and the entire Western Kansas region demonstrating how the strength of one business or organization can benefit the entire community. 

Congratulations to the Pratt County Historical Museum for being nominated to win the wKREDA Tourism/Art/Culture Business of the Year. We encourage community members to visit the museum!
