This weekend the Kansas Oil Museum will host a Free Family Fun Day for children of all ages and their families.


Three highlights



Plenty to do
Every third Saturday of the month the museum hosts  Free Family Fun Day featuring a wide variety of crafts, games, and activities on a different monthly theme.  

Help the big guy
This month the theme is Santa's Workshop, kiddos can “make like an elf” and craft. Projects will include making tree ornaments, old fashioned Christmas cards, yarn art and decorating gift bags to give the gifts in.

A look around the museum
While regular admission rates still apply for touring the museum galleries, many of our free Fun Days showcase items from the museum collections for kids to look at and handle, providing a chance for unique hands-on encounters with history, nature, and science.
The indoor gallery features Glory of the Hills, a permanent exhibit showcasing the Flint Hills and all of its natural beauty.  Historic photographs and artifacts explore the lives of early inhabitants, settlers, and farmer/ranchers who grazed their huge cattle herds on the rich bluestem grasses. Also indoors is  The Story of Oil in Butler County and many other displays, including fossils, geology specimens, the Butler County Courthouse, and numerous other artifacts from the  county’s history.


WHEN: Noon to 4 p.m.
WHERE: Kansas Oil Museum, 383 E. Central Ave, El Dorado.
HOW MUCH:  Children’s activities are free and do not require museum admission. For museum tours, admission is from $2 for students to $4 for adults for county residents, and $4 for students to $8 for adults for nonresidents.
