Pioneer Adventures: History & Heroes Tour

April 23-24 | Abilene & hutchinson, Kansas

Join MNU alumni and friends on this bus tour of two historical hotspots in Kansas. We will depart from Cook Center on the morning of April 23 for Abilene, KS. We will visit the Eisenhower Presidential Library and Museum, take a ride on the Abilene & Smoky Valley Railroad, eat dinner at the famous Brookville Hotel, and spend the night at a hotel in Abilene (double-occupancy rates). After breakfast, we will depart for Hutchinson to visit the salt mines, eat lunch at the Airport Steakhouse, and join in celebrating the 50-year anniversary of the lunar landing at the Cosmosphere. As a special treat, MNU history professor Dr. Darin Tuck and one of his students will be sharing interesting facts about Dwight Eisenhower's life, military service and presidency; the transportation revolution; and the space race. Upon your registration, Dr. Tuck will send you some suggested reading material to enhance the History & Heroes Tour. We will return to the MNU campus by the evening of April 24.
