Play a round of mini golf and help the Friends of the Smoky Hill Museum raise money for the renovation of the children’s hands-on area. Thanks to a matching grant from the local Modern Woodman of America members, all donations from games played at the Dustbowl Days Mini Golf course at the Smoky Hill River Festival will be matched one-to-one. The mini golf course is located right next to Artyopolis Game Street, on the west side of Festival grounds. Each round is only $.50. Mini golf hours are 10-5 pm Friday, June 12 and Saturday, June 13 and on Sunday, June 14 from 12-5 pm.

Not able to play a round? All donations and memberships to the Friends of the Museum will be matched through the Modern Woodmen grant from Monday, June 1 through Wednesday, June 17. Donations and memberships may be made on-line. Just go to and click ‘Become a Friend’ in the top bar. You can also stop by the Museum to make a donation at 211 W Iron Ave.
