A bit of just about everything on 3 floors. Greco-Roman? They have it. Egytian? They have it. Pre-contact Americas? They have it. Civil War, WWI, WWII, other militaria, paleontology, local history .... Displays aren't the most professional, but it pretty well covers everything with some items you'd never expect. Wish we'd had more time to look at everything that we... More

This place was pretty cute. The mummies were neat, and so were the dinosaur skeletons. Very informative. Building is very unique, has a lot of character. Kind of like going to your grandma's house, but with mummies.

This place reminds me of the old-style museum where intrepid explorers brought back the booty of their travels and displayed it for Victorian audiences to ooh and ahh over. They have an incredibly diverse amount of objects, from dinosaur bones to carved buddhas, to shrunken heads. Run mostly by volunteers, it has a really good vibe even though it's not... More

I was most interested in their letters- Tsar Nicholas of Russia, Kasier Wilhelm of Germany and various other world leaders. What a find! It was truly worth the price of admission. It was interesting exhibits from the Wizard of Oz to Lincoln's cane. It has ample parking and is just a fun escape .

Loved the dinosaur displays. My grandson loved the fossils and the T-Rex display. The oriental statues and displays were very interesting as well as the Egyptian displays. The second floor displays of the wars was very informative and the third floor was great. There was a little something for everyone there.

This is a great way to spend the day. Three floors of exhibits were awesome. They had an interesting collection of everything... there was something for everyone. There is a lot to take in during one visit; so plan on taking your time you don't want to miss anything.

We went and I think maybe our expectations were too high. It was just ok. It was kind of random but my kids like the Dinosaurs.

DW and I went for a few hours of exploring. The Museum is located in the middle of downtown, in a redeveloped area know as "Old town". Really neat area that you could spend several hours in. The museum is an interesting collection of EVERYTHING. It has items from dinosaurs through world history. We spent about 1 1/ hours and... More

It is a good time, but the mix of real and oddities was distracting. Lent less legitimacy if it were all one or the other. Was lead to believe it was more "Ripley's." There are other serious museums in Wichita that are better.
