Not the largest museum collection I've seen. It was small, but nice. I spent an interesting hour or so browsing the displays. There was a nice variety from several different cultures and time periods.

We first saw the beginnings of this museum years ago as an "exhibit" at Century II Concert Hall. We had just ourselves returned from a trip to Egypt the previous year, so we were amused at the doctor's fascination with Egyptian mummies, as well as his collection of Dinosaur bones. At that point in time, we had a toddler. Over... More

This museum is small but has a surprising range of interesting historical items, from dinosaurs to early Kansas history, complete with a macabre human scalp. You can spend hours here, and the gift shop is surprisingly good.

Went in today, and I am sure glad I did. Whenever I get the chance to travel and have a few moments to myself, I try to go to a museum to learn a little more about the local area. This museum is worth the trip. Big enough to spend lots of time yet small enough to zip through in... More

A fun little museum to spend a couple hours in if you visit Wichata. Some good dinosaur fossils (they dig up dinosaurs in Kansas and Montana), some good Egyptian artifacts (including two mummies) and some good history displays. Makes for an interesting eclectic mix.

I have been to this museum about 8 times since it opened. I was happy to see additions this time that included some interactive areas appropriate for all ages and a new play room! A couple of years ago a curator? Made my young son's day be letting him hold an old roman sword while he was revamping the display.... More
