Keystone Gallery

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 a14-foot Xiphactinus. Many other fish, turtle, and bird fossil specimens are also on display.

A colorful mural depicting the ancient Niobrara seaway accompanies the fossil display and was painted by artist Chuck Bonner. His other paintings adorn the walls of the gallery. Scenic photography by Barbara Shelton is also on display.

The gift shop has Monument Rocks souvenirs, U.S. and international fossils, minerals, and other items not usually found in this region. The historic 1916 building is surrounded by a herd of 300 buffalo that are sometimes nearby or can be spotted in the distance within our panoramic view of the Smoky Hill River Valley.

We are “conveniently located in the middle of nowhere” between Lake Scott State Park and Monument Rocks. Or, 18 miles north of Scott City on US Highway 83. Keystone Gallery is the official 8 Wonders Representative for Monument Rocks.
