Campus Construction and the Beach Museum of Art

​Building on tradition

We know comfort is key to making academic progress and groundbreaking discoveries. K-State is undergoing several heating and cooling projects across campus, including chilled water expansion, that will accommodate infrastructure changes now and in the future. To see updates and how your trip to K-State or the Beach Museum of Art may be affected check here.

As of July 17, 2015 The Beach Museum of Art will no longer have access to our visitor parking lot. Providing parking for our visitors is important, so make sure to look for the designated visitor spots in the main lot outside the museum, you will still have to register your vehicle once inside the museum. If those spots are full, and you are able to find a spot in the lot, go ahead and take it, but let us know when you get inside, we can provide you with a day pass for use during your visit at the museum.

If you have questions, feel free to give us a call 785.532.7718

The beginning of a new school year is well on its way…

Another successful summer of enrolment and orientation for incoming students has passed us by! The Marianna Kistler Beach Museum of Art would like to welcome all incoming Kansas State University students to the K-State Family. For the past several years the museum has participated in orientation and found it to be a great way to let incoming students and Manhattan residents know of the gem we have tucked on the corner of campus.

The student employees of the museum spend time during orientation sharing information about the museum with the incoming students and their families. We see this as an opportunity for current students to bond with incoming students, sharing the wildcat way. This year we were able to reach out to over 1000 people.

Manhattan is a great place to live and go to school, welcome, and we’ll see you in August!
