Kaw City Museum commemorates the history of a small, northern Oklahoma town, forced to relocate in the early 70’s when the United States Corps of Engineers picked its fertile land as the site for the 38-mile Kaw Lake. Housed in the old town’s train depot, the museum is operated by volunteers and is funded through donations and fund-raisers. Established in 1972, the museum has undergone several expansions as its collection of artifacts has grown. Board members volunteer to keep the museum open on Saturdays and Sundays from 1-5pm during tourist season, beginning on Memorial Weekend and ending on Labor Day. Private tours may be arranged during times when the museum is closed. Admission is free.
