call for photos
Looking ahead to future exhibits we are beginning the process of collecting photos about weather. Kansans know all too well how the weather can change from day to day. One of the first temporary exhibits to be featured in the location will focus on Kansas weather and weather related events in Lyon County and the area.
If you have photos related to any aspect of weather please send them our way. We are looking for any type of weather event during the past 100+ years.
