Underground Kansas

What’s in hiding

Bats stop by caves to rest, even to mate, while movie stars never grow old — their best performances preserved for the ages, thanks to pristine conditions in underground vaults. Visit some of Underground Kansas’ least-accessible areas.

Look inside: Underground Vaults & Storage

Charlton Heston, Jennifer Aniston and Judge Wapner all share a room in the most unlikely of places: hundreds of feet below the surface of Hutchinson. The icons of screens big and small endure on master negatives kept in the climate-controlled comfort of Underground Vaults & Storage, tucked away inside a former salt mine.

Lee Spence: Preserve and protect

A trip through the Salt Mine Museum is awesome. Yep there is a gift shop way beneath the surface in this museum. This place is used to store films and "important" documents forever. An excellent field trip.

We and another family made a two day venture of this field trip which included the Kansas Cosmosphere & Space Center and Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve in the Flint Hills.

I recommend the Underground Salt Mine Museum. It's fun, it's interesting, and it's worth every penny of admission.
