The Stauth Memorial Museum features the travel adventures of Claude and Donalda Stauth, long-time residents of Montezuma, Kansas. Admission to the Stauth Memorial Museum is free, but donations are graciously accepted. At the Stauth Memorial Museum, you will journey with Claude and Donnie as you stroll through the permanent exhibit Around the World. Experience famous sites, handicrafts and arts from around the world through displays, video programs and a slide show based on the Stauth’s trips.
Because the Stauths wanted the museum to go beyond the story of their personal travels, the largest portion of the Stauth Memorial Museum is dedicated to the Special Exhibitions Gallery. In this gallery, you will continue your discoveries with featured traveling exhibits from renowned national and international exhibit sources. Return to the Stauth Memorial Museum again and again to learn about history, art, science, and more. The Special Exhibitions Gallery changes approximately every six to eight weeks so there is always something new and exciting to explore and learn.
The Stauth Memorial Museum is also home to the Fry Wildlife Collection, one of Kansas’ most extensive collections of North American and exotic game animals, including former record-breaking specimens. This is a must see for all hunters, sportsmen, and conservationists.
The newest addition to the Stauth Memorial Museum is the Wall Western Collection which features 19 authorized Frederic Remington bronze reproductions, plus other famous Western bronzes. This extensive collection is the life-long passion of Montezuma resident, Howard Wall.
These world class permanent exhibitions and continuously changing traveling exhibits continue the Stauth’s tradition of bringing the world and its cultures to Montezuma and Kansas. Stop by to see what new adventures await you at the Stauth Memorial Museum.
