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.
