Keystone Gallery is a combination museum art gallery, and gift shop. The museum section contains an extensive, scientific collection of local Kansas fossils including a 20-foot Mosasaur and a 14-foot Xiphactinus. Many other fish, turtle, and bird fossil specimens are also on display.
Our museum also houses a collection of paintings and other artwork by Chuck Bonner—as featured on the art page—and scenic photography by Barbara Shelton.
We are located between the towns of Oakley and Scott City, Kansas on US 83 overlooking the Smoky Hill valley and the Badlands of Kansas region.
Since our inception, we have hosted numerous visitors from fascinating backgrounds, including many states and foreign countries. Our visitors’ interests vary widely; they include the local Monument Rocks formation, Kansas fossils, and the various fossils and minerals for sale in the gallery. Some visitors just stop by out of curiosity about the building’s history or the buffalo herd.
Keystone was a church from 1917 to 1953, but had been abandoned until we bought it. You can find an in-depth history of the gallery in the “Area” section of our site.
Please pay us a visit while you are in the neighborhood and see more information under the “Area” section. You can see some of the books, websites, and other places we've appeared, as well as events we've attended, on our publicity page.
