As its name suggests, the Mid-America All-Indian Center is a museum dedicated to preserving and celebrating the culture and history of Native Americans, as well as the role they play in society today. The museum features a collection of 3,000 artifacts; these are rotated in new exhibits throughout the year. The museum also features activities and attractions outside, including a tipi, travois (a drag sled for horses and dogs), a wildlife learning center, and a medicinal garden. Events held at the museum include powwows and community nights. Educational programs are also offered including arts and craft classes. The museum was founded in 1969. Near the museum is one of the city's landmarks, the Keeper of the Plains monument.
