The Kansas Barbed Wire Museum is a western history museum that tells the story of how a simple invention known as barbed wire had a dramatic impact on the settlement of the American West. Through interpretive displays and educational programming the museum illustrates the hardships the settlers of the Great Plains experienced and explains the history of barbed wire and its historical connection of the “homestead laws” to the use of barbed wire.
Due to the Covid-19 shutdown, the museum was forced to remain closed for the first part of the 2020 season. In addition, the annual Barbed Wire Festival, a main fund-raising event for the museum, was cancelled for the first time in 54 years. This is your chance to help the museum and purchase some great holiday gifts in the process.
NOTICE: Due to regulations, the commemorative .22 rifle will not be offered during this auction. Contact us for more information.
