The Osawatomie History Museum in Osawatomie, Kansas was established in 1989 and expanded with a replica of the community's 1890 Missouri Pacific passage depot. That wing of the museum is sometimes called the Osawatomie Railroad Museum.

The museum does a good job of telling the story of the development of Osawatomie in a way that is entertaining and with well organized and labeled exhibits. I particularly enjoyed the many historic photos of the community.

When you leave the Osawatomie History Museum, pick up a copy of the Osawatomie Driving Tour.
