Don't know where to begin with this one. This is just a great museum to visit. There are all sorts of artifacts from all over the world even real mummies to look at. Take as many pictures as you like. There is even a treasure hunt for the kids to do. Plan on spending a few hours looking at it... More

I took 3 vendors from mainland China, and they found a number of things fascinating, I was glad it was open when other Wichita museums were closed on a Tuesday.

Museum is much larger and better than I suspected. Located in the cool area of Wichita in Old Town. Guide was friendly on the second floor. Mummies were amazing as well as dinosaur bones from the region.

Loved this place! I really loved the exhibit on the first floor. The top floor was undergoing some renovations so this review is only a 4. But overall, fun little place. I would definitely return and recommend to people visiting. :)

Good overall collection of artifacts, with the military collection being the most impressive. Ivan the T-Rex and the other dinosaur displays were very cool as well. Wouldn't really take smaller kids there because there isn't too much in the way of interactive exhibits. Cool gift shop area with reproduction historical documents and swords.

I was surprised to see the amount of history in such an unassuming place. There are dinosaurs, letters from 12th century kings. Writing from every U.S. President, etc. We bought a sword of Solomon from the gift shop.

This museum has an interesting and eclectic collection. It is housed in an old converted building in the historic Old Town neighborhood. I found the dinosaur exhibit to be the most interesting. They have one of the most complete T-Rex specimens in the world and have several other interesting specimens as well. A variety of other interesting exhibits including Egyptian... More

Awesome collections of antiquities from around the world. There's a little of a lot of things and time periods - something to interest everyone, even children. The exhibits are very informative and many items are remarkably ancient. We only had about 3 hours and would have liked more time. Two exhibits we really enjoyed were quotes of all the US... More
