9 Out Of The Box Kansas Adventures To Have When You Think You’ve Done It All
Kansas is full of attractions in many of our towns, and every single county. There’s always something to explore or see, and we’re grateful for that. However, sometimes cool attractions like these get overlooked while you’re working on your bucket lists. These out-of-the-box Kansas adventures are ready for you to take them, whenever you’ve got time. Let’s check them out!
1. Boyer Museum of Animated Carvings - Belleville
Quirky little carvings of men and women doing odd tasks or making jokes fill this museum, and they're all from the mind of Paul Boyer.
2. World's Largest Easel - Goodland
The world's largest Easel stands in Goodland, but it's also worth noting that a pretty large replica of one of Van Gogh's sunflower paintings. Maybe it's
alsothe largest replica of this painting as well?
3. Strataca - Hutchinson
Also known as the Kansas Underground Salt Museum, there's plenty to learn about salt mining, as well as an amazing tour through the mine.
4. Grassroots Art Center and Bowl Plaza - Lucas
In Lucas, you'll find yourself surrounded by folk art and things to see. However, two locations I recommend visiting are the Grassroots Art Center and Bowl Plaza. Bowl Plaza is a toilet-shaped public bathroom, and the art center is a paradise of more art in the same style.
5. M. T. Liggett's Political Sculptures - Mullinville
The late M. T. Liggett filled this stretch of road with plenty of political figures in various poses and sometimes even with captions or labels. It's a curious sight for sure, if you've never seen it before.
6. Hot and Cold water towers - Pratt
First labeled in the 50s, these water towers are something cool to look at or photograph if you're headed through town.
7. Big Brutus - West Mineral
Big Brutus is a silent giant shovel surrounded by nothing but Kansas. You can see it on the horizon as you approach, and it's truly amazing to see what was once the largest shovel around.
8. Evel Kneivel Museum - Topeka
This daredevil is honored at this Topeka museum where you can see items from his shows, information about his life, and take a virtual jump for yourself.
9. World’s Largest Collection of the World’s Smallest Versions of the World’s Largest Things - Lucas
Also in Lucas is this traveling art show, where you can view exactly what the title says. It might be a mouthful, but seeing these miniatures in person is an odd adventure we think you'll love.
