The Prairie Museum of Art & History's main building facility is a 21,500 sq. foot pre-stressed concrete building, designed by architect George Kuska, son of Joe and Nellie Kuska. An earth berm planted with native buffalo grass encircles the building and blends with the surrounding prairie. Construction of the facility commenced with a ground-breaking ceremony on May 24, 1987. One year later, on May 24, 1988, the world-class Kuska Collection was moved to the site, where it continues to help define the museum as one of the finest in Midwest Kansas.

The complex covers 24 acres and is home to indoor and outdoor exhibits, many temporary exhibits, and annual programs and activities designed for both children and adults.
