• Big Brutus - Mineral, Kansas

      Roadtrip Attraction
      The second largest electric shovel in the world, Big Brutus stands 160 feet high, and is visible for miles around. From 1962 to 1974, it was a powerful aid to the Kansas mining industry. Today, the public is invited to climb inside it, look around, and even sit in the operator's seat. A visitors' center next to it provides more background information.

      Open every day except Thanksgiving and Christmas. Hours vary by season. Small admission charge.
