Safari Film Fest August 13 & 14

This Saturday and Sunday, museum visitors will have a chance to watch local, and not so local, history come alive while learning why it’s important to not just remember the past, but to preserve it for future generations.

The Safari Museum started hosting film fests 13 years ago as a way to get Martin and Osa Johnson’s films transferred to DVD so they would be available to fans […]

Adventure Duck Race July 16, 2016

This year, the Martin and Osa Johnson Safari Museum will conduct its 2nd annual “Adventure Duck Race” fundraiser. The idea is simple—”adopt” a rubber duck and join us at the Maring Aquatic Center on Saturday August 16th at 10am to watch a whole bunch of rubber ducks race down the Lazy River!   The event will start at 10am with the official Adventure Race to begin around 10:45.  Duck Racer sponsors do not need to be present to win, but we hope you’ll turn up for a “quacking” good time.

Admission to watch the event will be $1 per person; admission is free to any and all who have purchased at least one racer. Duck adoptions and sales are ongoing and the cost is $5 each or a “Quack Pack” of 5 Racers for $20.  The adopted and numbered racers stay at the museum and come in two sizes.  This year, the museum is also selling the larger ducks ahead of the race so they can be decorated.  The cost is the same as the numbered ducks, but there will be a race entrance fee at the gate of $1 per decorated duck.  Decorated ducks must be at the gate no later than 10:30 & the only ducks that are eligible to hit the water are those that have been purchased at the Safari Museum.

The museum will also be offering a limited collection of “Safari Race Ducks” which businesses and individuals can adopt for $25 to participate in a special Sponsor Only pre-Race.  They, plus one very special “Osa Duck,” which will be a Cash Door Prize race option at the admission gate, will fight the Lazy River current to compete for top honors. All race […]

Paranormal Investigation in Chanute

How do you conduct a responsible paranormal investigation and remain respectful of the people involved both living and deceased?  The Safari Museum has played host to several paranormal investigation (PI) events by professional groups at both the Santa Fe Depot and at the museum’s original location on Grant Avenue and there is always natural curiosity of how such events are handled. On Saturday, April 30th, Dusk 2 Dawn Paranormal Investigations of Independence, MO will conduct a Public Investigation at both the Safari Museum and the Chanute Historical Society located next to our facility.

Founded in 2010 by Team Leader Jimmie McVey, Dusk2Dawn investigators never charge for private service and they are very discreet, and will only release findings if the clients grant permission.  The team do conduct ticketed fundraisers to help charity and non-profit organizations like the Safari Museum and this is the first public fundraising event they are hosting in Chanute on April 30.  A portion of the ticket revenue will be donated to both non-profit museums.

Whether you are a skeptic or a believer, these events are always educational, engaging and anything that helps to maintain Chanute’s historic Santa Fe Depot, as well as our original museum building site at the former Santa Fe Freight Office, is a benefit to our community.

For more information or to purchase tickets, please go to:

    Final Friday Film Event: The Adventure Lovers Sept 25 in Wichita

Final Friday Film Event: The Adventure Lovers Sept 25 in Wichita

Martin and Osa Johnson, Kansas’ own exploring duo, were best known around the world as “The boy and girl next door who made movies far away” during the 1920s and 30s. Their legacy of motion pictures and unprecedented wildlife photography continue to draw the interest of international scholars as well as the general public. People around the world still thrill to the romance and adventure that mark the Johnson’s lives thanks to public programs designed by the Martin and Osa Johnson Safari Museum in Chanute, KS.

On September 25, Final Friday audiences will get to experience the excitement of seeing Martin and Osa’s story on the silver screen once more at the Downtown Senior Center in Wichita. This film celebration, hosted by Senior Services, Inc. of Wichita, will begin at 6 p.m. when doors will open for a short reception. There will be introductions and a documentary film will start at 6:45 p.m. The curator of the Safari Museum, Jacquelyn Borgeson Zimmer, will present a brief talk on the Johnsons and discuss exhibition photographs and artifacts from the museum during the pre-show reception and will take questions from the crowd after the film screening.

Adventure Lovers, the English language version of the French “Les Amants de l’Aventure” will be the featured presentation of this evening. Shot on location in Africa, New York and Kansas, this was the first full length documentary produced on the life and times of the Johnsons. At its debut, the film won the Grand Prize at the Jules Verne Film Festival in Paris and it has been translated into five languages for showings across the globe. “2015 is the 75th Anniversary of Osa Johnson’s […]
