Mahaffie Education Programs

Mahaffie Stagecoach Stop offers your students an opportunity to discover history where it happened.  Hands-on activities with our animals, wagons and stagecoach make visiting Mahaffie fun for children and a valuable tool for educators!


Each of our five structured programs were designed to meet the curriculum standards for both Kansas and Missouri schools.  We also offer two programs that can be taken into the schools.

Except for the stagecoach ride, activities can be moved into buildings due to weather.  If lightening is present, stagecoach rides cannot take place.
