Registered voters in Hutchinson are invited to come on down -- 650 feet down -- for free tours of the Kansas Underground Salt Museum on Tuesday evening.

The Hutchinson News reports museum officials are offering the tours ahead of next month's vote on extending a city sales tax that benefits the attraction.

Revenue from the tax also goes for sidewalk and street improvements, property tax reduction and another of Hutchinson's big attractions, the Kansas Cosmosphere and Space Museum.

Officials say the Underground Salt Museum gets about $100,000 a year -- roughly 10 percent of its budget -- from the sales tax.

Tuesday evening's tours are intended to give registered voters who live in Hutchinson a chance to see the museum and hear how the tax revenue has been spent.
