Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve invites you to discover the meaning of national parks, how your park inspires you – both in personal connections and memorable experiences. Costumed characters will present historic first-person vignettes in and around the historic buildings as visitors are transported back in time through a series of scenes portraying documented activities and events that took place at the ranch over 130 years ago. Visitors will learn about the ranch’s rich heritage of cattle, happy and tough times, and everyday people living on the prairie. Walking tours of 15 people every 15 minutes will rotate through the historic ranch corridor among paths lit by lantern light. The first tour begins at 5:30 p.m. with 15-minute intervals following. Each tour is approximately one hour with the last tour beginning at 9:00 p.m. Walking surfaces are gravel and grass paths, with many steps into and out of the buildings throughout the tour. Please arrive 15 minutes ahead of your tour time, dress for cold weather, wear good walking shoes, and check-in at the visitor center.
All activities are free, but reservations are required.
