Dad and Son (13) trip. Sam says interesting collection, many meteorites. Adding new exhibits. New and up to date building. Will take about an hour to thoroughly enjoy. Need maps, etc. stop by the Kansas Travel Center in the same building.

I've been a part of small meetings, large meetings, and even large party gatherings at the McPherson Museum. With a variety of spaces available, and an extremely helpful and flexible staff, I'm so grateful that the McPherson Museum is part of the McPherson community.

Please note that the museum is a work in progress and being updated. The building is new & the exhibits are top rate. If the future exhibits added are of the same caliber, then I would return.

Lovely new building, but as of May 2014 there are only a handful of exhibits. They still need to rais money for the exhibits and I would wait until 2015 to give it a try.
