The Marianna Kistler Beach Museum of Art offers an in-depth look at Kansas art and brings art and artists from around the world to the heart of Kansas. The museum’s collection includes over 7,000 objects and continues to focus on art of Kansas and the region.
The museum aspires to provide diverse experiences that strengthen the community's enjoyment and understanding of visual arts and the creative process. We believe art is a natural common ground, representing creativity and promoting discussion for all disciplines. We invite you to explore with us and encourage you to think anew about personal experiences, sense of place, and the world of knowledge.
