Chisholm Trail: Driving the American West
Chisholm Trail: Driving the American West is FREE to all Museum visitors, and located in the Innovation Zone.
Come celebrate the 150th Anniversary of the Chisholm Trail with us!
This original exhibit — created by Symphony in the Flint Hills, Flint Hills Design and Lost Trail Soda — invites visitors of all ages to explore the Chisholm Trail from its inception in the 1860s to today. Exhibit highlights include an interactive musical exploration of the scores of verses to the cowboy song, “The Old Chisholm Trail,” video and audio clips of movies and songs that reference the Chisholm Trail, and several artistically rendered, life-size longhorn cattle.
“The Chisholm Trail symbolizes so much that is important to the Flint Hills, and they both share the same spirit and opportunities.”
– Christy Davis, Executive Director of Symphony in the Flint Hills
“This new exhibit gives us a unique way to share the story with many communities in this anniversary year.”
