Thomas County
Attractions and Recreation

Thomas County is a great destination to discover or to share with family and friends who come to visit.  Begin your visit at the Colby Visitor Center to learn of the latest activities and events.  The unique building design is intended to honor two of our largest industries, agriculture and tourism.

Another unique building is the Prairie Museum of Art & History which features the large pyramid.  The museum contains a great international collection of glass, rare dolls and so much more. The complex also includes the large barn, one room school, country church and a sod house exemplifying our pioneer heritage. World-class, Kansas Style.

The Thomas County Courthouse is a historic courthouse that is a must see with the Spirit of the Prairie statue again reminding us of our history and heritage. Visit the Northwest Kansas Experiment Station for colorful floral photo opportunities from spring through fall. And don’t miss Santa City, a must see for young and old alike during the holidays.

Recreational opportunities include; the new Colby Aquatic Park, Meadow Lake Golf Course and Colby Bowl & Fun Center.  The county offers outstanding hunting for pheasants, turkey, and deer.
