Safari Museum re-Opening Details & Call In Policy: Museums are now allowed to be open to the public as of Friday May 22.

Since we share the depot lobby with the Chanute Public Library, & they are maintaining entrance via Appointment Only, our museum visitors will need to call us at 620-431-2730 after ARRIVING at the depot parking lot. A member of the museum staff will meet you at the front door for access to the museum. Our hours are Tuesday-Saturday 10-5 & 1-5 Sundays.

To make the galleries safe for visitors, we are making vast changes to our hands-on artifacts & activities. We ask for patience as we find new ways to keep our young explorers safe without our cool hands on artifacts. For now, staff will be wearing masks & we will be encouraging visitors to wear them; we have been donated disposable masks specifically for Visitor use. The 6ft Social Distancing Protocol will be in effect in the museum & our theater.

We will be providing more information here & on our social media platforms as we get up and fully running! Thank you all for helping us make Learning a (very long) Lifelong Adventure!
