The Reno County Museum is truly where YOUR stories live! Help us keep your stories safe by supporting the museum.

It’s 20,000 years ago. Imagine a woolly mammoth grazing along the river on a beautiful summer day in what is now South Hutchinson. A tooth found in South Hutchinson and now in the museum collection inspires this story of an ancient Reno County inhabitant.

Our museum is not just a warehouse for “old stuff” – it’s a place that ensures that our stories of immigration, hardship, celebration, innovation, and industry will live on and continue to be told. RCM preserves, interprets, and cherishes the stories of our families and communities.

RCM offers a series of workshops that inspire and inform you how to preserve your own personal stories. Do you have a treasured piece of family history packed away? We will show you how to bring its story to life and preserve it for your children, grandchildren, and future generations.
