Now that the 2016 U.S. presidential election is in the books, much of the media attention is on President Elect Donald Trump.


But one museum in northwest Kansas seeks to keep the spotlight on the also-rans. The small gallery, called They Also Ran, is just as obscure as the candidates it memorializes.


“No one likes the guy who comes in second place, but we’re proud of the people who tried,” Lee Ann Shearer, the exhibit’s longtime curator, told “We’re not dissing you because you didn’t make president. It takes a lot of guts. You almost achieved the highest office in the country and imagine the feeling of defeat when you don’t get it.”


The museum, located in Norton, Kan, holds 60 black-and-white photos of candidates who have lost U.S. presidential elections. This fall, they added a 61st photograph, a 16-by-20 portrait of the gallery’s first female honoree.


The exhibit has been in place since 1965, though no former presidential candidates have ever visited. Still, it sees visitors from around the world, despite its limited hours of weekdays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
