The Museum tells the story of a group of Low-German speaking Mennonites who emigrated from Russia in 1874 and settled near present-day Goessel, Kansas.

The Agricultural part of the Museum features artifacts in the Turkey Red Wheat Palace that related to the progression of mechanization in farming from the 1800's to the mid 1960's.
