Don't just take it from us

"Lawrence was a great site for our annual Kansas Museums Association conference. The support from area businesses, Lawrence museums, the hotel staff at the Oread, and Explore Lawrence was refreshing and very helpful, making conference planning and execution go very well.  We felt welcome and everyone was incredibly flexible!  Some participants even chose to stay after the conference to visit shops and Lawrence's vibrant downtown."  - Morgan Barnes, Kansas Museums Association
