Specializing in bus tour groups, the Prairie Museum of Art & History encourages and sincerely welcomes gatherings of all sizes, ages and from all organizations to tour the exhibits.

The group rate for adults is $6 per person. Admission for tour group drivers and leaders is complimentary. The  visit can suit any tour schedule; visitors can see the entire museum in as little as one hour or can make the tour last as long as an entire day. Restrooms and water fountains are easily accessible and are located near the front entrance. Complimentary videos are oftentimes available for viewing in the Garvey Education Room.

The Prairie Museum can be explained as "two museums in one." Upon arrival, guests can shop for Kansas souvenirs and unique gifts in the Museum Mart, which is located in the main lobby, and then head off through the indoor exhibits. Included in the indoor exhibits is the world-class Kuska Collection, High Plains Journey Stories, a Kansas Kids Corner and other temporary exhibits that frequently change. There is also a library for those interested in learning about local history. With plenty of things to see and places to sit, the indoor exhibits are air conditioned and perfect for guests who prefer to stay indoors.

The outdoor exhibits reflect the lives of pioneers that settled in Western Kansas in the 1870s. The Prairie Living Site includes six time-period buildings that showcase artifacts and displays as well as a 10-acre Western Prairie Educational Site, a perennial herb garden, a small playground and during the spring and summer, there is oftentimes 4-H livestock living at the Vacin Barn.
