Big Well Museum

Greensburg, KS

Honoring the world’s largest hand-dug well, the new museum is a showcase for the city to be proud of, displaying where they’ve come from and where they’re going. The new museum features exhibits on the history of Greensburg and the digging of the Big Well, the tornado, and the rebuilding of the town. Visitors once again can take tours into the well, descending into the depths of the cavern on a spiral staircase, which provided the basis for the iconic cylindrical design of the building. In addition, the facility includes a gift shop, restrooms, and office and administrative space.
