Pawnee Indian Museum

480 Pawnee Trail
Republic, KS 66964

785-361-2255

The Pawnee Nation was the dominant power of the central plains for hundreds of years. This museum tells the story of a Pawnee village that may have existed as early at 1770. The most remarkable feature is the museum's centerpiece--the excavated floor of a large Pawnee earth lodge. Feel the spirits of the past while walking the perimeter of the lodge and view the rare sacred bundle that hangs above the altar. After touring the museum, walk the interpretive trail that winds through the depressions marking other lodges. Learn about the people of the Pawnee Nation and their stories when you visit the Pawnee Indian Museum.
