The U S presidents section was great with some quotes and handwriting samples. Just enough of a lot of subjects to wet your appetite but not be overwhelming.

This museum had so much variety and so much more to it than I ever expected. The kids got to do a "scavenger hunt" which got them more engaged in what they were looking at and allowed us adults to spend more time looking at the things we enjoyed.

My husband and I recently visited family in Wichita and spent part of Sunday afternoon at the Museum of World Treasures. Unfortunately, we only allowed two hours. There is so much to see that we could easily have spent two more hours there.

For being a smaller city, this museum has quite the variety of artifacts from different periods and regions. I was pleasantly surprised by the number of exhibits in this museum. added touch is the location, in the heart of the Old Town area.

Went with best friend and 7 yr old goddaughter and spent 3 hours looking around. So much to see and learn. Two real mummies and shrunken head. We enjoyed it and happy we went.

If you are in Wichita and have about 4 hours to kill...holy cow is this place AWESOME. The second floor alone has some of the best history to offer in any museum I have been in the USA. Absolutely go check this place out. We had a blast and glad we looked for things to do locally that day. Highly... More
