The Elizabeth Dole Gallery & Reading Room was dedicated in 2020 and is home of the Robert & Elizabeth Dole Archive & Special Collections. The Gallery is open 12-4 p.m. Tuesday-Sunday. Research by appointment only.
This dramatic 3,300-square-foot space, a gift of the Dane G. Hansen Foundation of Logan, Kansas, is encircled by 20 separate exhibits. The ceiling slopes from 12 feet at the north end to 36 feet at the south end. The floor is laid with tile from Crossville, Tennessee. The hall serves as an exhibit space, public forum and venue for meetings, programs and dinners.
The Darby Gallery is home to the Kansas Veterans Wall and the Kansas Map. The Darby Gallery was made possible through the generous support of the Edith and Harry Darby Foundation.
