Welcome to the Mennonite Heritage Museum. Dedicated in 1974, the museum complex was established to preserve the artifacts from early households, farms, schools, churches and the hospital in our Mennonite community.
The museum was erected as a living tribute to the forefathers of the Goessel community who settled this area. It tells the story of the Mennonite families who left Russia for religious freedom in 1874 and chose the Kansas plains for their new home.
The museum complex consists of eight buildings, including the Immigrant House and the Turkey Red Wheat Palace. Six historic buildings from the community have been moved to the museum for preservation and restoration.
The Museum Store in the Immigrant House features a variety of ethnic cookbooks, local history books, wheat weaving and other handmade craft gift items.
