La Crosse - Kansas Barbed Wire Museum

120 West 1st Street
785-222-9900

The Kansas Barbed Wire Museum in LaCrosse, Kansas is devoted solely to the history and legend of this part of American history often referred to as the “Devils Rope”. On exhibit are over 2000 barbed wire varieties; including samples manufactured between the years 1870 and 1890. Hundreds of antique fencing tools illustrate the inventiveness of pioneers.

The museum presents interesting ways to learn about one of the midwest's most important contributions to America's history.  Dioramas of early barbed wire use, a theatre featuring educational films, the Barbed Wire Hall of Fame, the museum archives room, and a research library all help to conjure up images of settling the midwest, range wars between homesteaders and cattlemen, and the transformation of the open prairie into America's bread basket.

I went to the museum opening weekend because my mother lived there. It was interesting. I'm a hairstylist and they had a lot of antique styling and perming tools which I found fascinating! Tracie Belling
