The Wyandotte County Museum is excited to announce that we received a Union Pacific Community Space Grant to help fund our new Wyandotte County Heritage Exhibit! This grant will help kick-off our East Gallery renovation. Phase one of the project will focus on telling the interconnected story of industry, community, and culture in Wyandotte County from the early railroads until 1920. Exhibit renovations will begin in 2021. A huge thank you to the Union Pacific Railroad for their support!
