Great Afternoon

It was very cold and snowing outside and the museum was a great place to stay warm. The displays were very informational and the gift shop was wonderful.

I was really surprised at how nice this museum is. After visiting the Wichita Aviation Museum I was disappointed due to Wichita being the air Capitol of the world. So I went in the Museum of World Treasures feeling that it would only be par, but I was wrong. It is worth a visit

It had some good points and some not so good. I just wasn't very impressive. The meeting room wasn't very big. The organization of the exhibition flow didn't work.

This place is cool. Unfortunately we didn't have very long to spend here. They really do have all kinds of interesting things to see. I'd say the name really fits because they stuff from all over the world and all different time periods, from dinosaur bones to swords from the crusades to Alexander Hamiltons coat. And we never made it... More

I was in town for a week and had a day off and decided to give this attraction a try. It is three floors filled with all different kinds of items. I think that's what I enjoyed the most about this muesuem was how different the exhibits were. I was able to get through everything in about an hour and... More

This was a great place. We had time off and wanted to do something. This was perfect. Not the average afternoon sightsee.

Who knew one building could contain so many antiquities and artifacts from mummies right up through Civil War memorabilia. It is not expensive and has three floors worth of wonderful things to see! I highly recommend it. Did you know there used to be an ocean in the middle of the United States and you can find fossils of large... More

Great for adults and kids alike. A bit pricey but lots of fascinating stuff to browse. Nartural history, ancient world artifacts and US war exhibits from revolutionary through Viet Nam are impressive.

Visited here on a whim and was surprised. Family was looking for an activity for a day and we came here on a reduced admission day. What I found inside blew my mind. There was so much inside! The outside is deceiving, there are many worlds to explore. Some of it was geared for the mature crowd but there was... More
