Description

Kansas has a rich history of events and colorful characters that have shaped the state we call home. Amongst those people, one can find a wide variety of individuals whose actions range from noble to downright despicable. The Smoky Hill Museum took on the monumental task of narrowing down that list of individuals for inclusion in the upcoming exhibit Notorious which opens August 31.

Complicating the matter was the very meaning itself.  In many ways, the adjective notorious can be just as grey as the people it describes. In some instances, it’s used to pronounce someone in a negative manner, while other times it has been used to define anyone who is widely known. In this exhibit, the visitor is left to decide. Visitors will learn about people like John Brown, Dr. Brinkley, Bonny and Clyde, Buffalo Bill  and the Bloody Benders to name a few. Certain individuals are undoubtedly negative and the meaning of Notorious is clear cut, while others leave you with a lasting debate.

Throughout visitors will be discover legend versus reality, how societies views shift with the passage of time and just how these notorious Kansans forever left their mark on the State. If that’s not enough, visitors can always count on a number of hands-on elements to get more into the story.

Museum and exhibit hours are Tuesdays through Fridays 12 noon to 6:00 pm and Saturdays 10:00 am to 5:00 pm.
