Hours and Admission

Thinking about a visit to the Sternberg Museum of Natural History? Our Museum has a gallery full of fossils, live animals, and natural history facts to keep you busy for hours. We are conveniently located near I -70 in Hays, Kansas. If you are thinking of bringing a group we can provide guided tours. Check out our gallery guide for a sneak preview of what’s inside the Museum. While the Museum is a full day of entertainment why not make it an even more exciting weekend!
