The Coronado-Quivira Museum in Lyons is one of the best small museums in Kansas. Separate displays focus on early inhabitants, Spanish explorers, the Sante Fe Trail, and the coming of homesteaders and permanent settlers.
Part of the museum is in the old Carnegie Library, with most of the displays in the newer, adjacent structure.

Crispin's Drug Store Museum held its Grand Opening on July 22, 2007. This pharmacy museum is set up as a small town drug store from the 1880-1920 period. This was a time of transition for druggists - switching from preparing ingredients and products from crude drug forms (such as seeds, barks, and roots) themselves - to buying the ingredients and products already prepared from the growing number of drug manufacturers at the end of the period.
