Located in Colby, Kansas, at the "Oasis on the Plains" the Prairie Museum covers 24 acres and is the site of a 1930s farmstead, sod house, one-room school and the Lone Star Church. The Cooper Barn, the largest barn in Kansas, now houses the exhibit "High and Dry: Agriculture on the High Plains" and features farm implements, vehicles and photographs depicting the history of agriculture during the past century.
The cavernous upper level is used for social activities. The main museum building was added in 1988. It is surrounded by a berm of buffalo grass. This unique building houses over 28,000 artifacts collected from around the world.
