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

Had a great time at this museum. It wasn't over price to get in. And it had great exhibits. Impressed with the items they have. Its not the fanciest museum, but it had a lot of cool things and they are growing.

I can almost guarantee that whatever point of history you're interested in, they are going to have an artifact or an exhibit for it. It's no Louvre, but there are exhibits here that you would never expect to be in the center of the U.S. It was very fascinating and I wish I had more than an hour to look... More

Lots of treasures packed into this three story museum. I attended Coffee with the Curator and then explored the exhibit areas. Lots of nicely done display areas with local and world connections. The dinosaur display in the main floor will appeal to children. Need to allow time to read the display information. I will plan to return to read more... More

The Museum of World Treasures was a great way to spend a couple of hours. We have teens through toddlers, so it's tough to find a place we all love - but this one fit the bill. A cross between Chicago's Field Museum and Ripley's Believe It Or Not, this three-story Kansas gem has an eclectic mix of everything. From... More

What a cool place to visit! We were staying at a local hotel across the street and couldn't resist going in. Our 2 year old was in love with the children's area on the 3rd floor and allowed for my husband and I to take turns and view the exhibits without having to chase him around. Overall a wonderful place... More

Many cities tried to pry this museum from Wichita and fortunately for Wichita, they haven't moved. It has a LOT more than you'd think a museum in a small city would have. From Ivan the T-Rex, which is one of the most complete T-Rexs ever discovered (and other dinosaurs), to Egyptian Mummies, shrunken heads, artifacts from every historical era (I... More

When I read that a wedding reception I was attending was to be held in the Museum of World Treasures building I wasn't sure what to expect. Once inside I had to explore so I grabbed up my grandchildren and away we went. Was pleasantly surprised to see things of interest for all of the my grandchildren which ranged from... More

This place is probably great for kids/families and is solid for what it is-but I got bored fairly quickly. If you go to a lot of musuems in major cities you prob will want to skip this UNLESS you or your kids love dinosaurs, geology and/or you are looking for an hour or so to kill. I do love the... More
