Thus museum has an amazing array of subject matter for a museum of its size. The Vietnam era exhibit was just redone and adds information and appeal to the war area from my last visit. We also enjoyed the Writing exhibit in the rotating gallery. It will be there until the end of 2015 I think. The kids in the... More

What an amazing place the Museum of World Treasures is. My entire family had a great time looking at all of the artifacts and reading about them too. My twins enjoyed participating in the scavenger hunt. It amazed me the amount of real artifacts they have. The staff was beyond friendly and helpful. I can't say enough wonderful things about...

Great museum with a lot to offer in a small space. Well maintained and organized. Definitely worth a visit. Loved the fact that the African American viewpoint was captured! (e.g. segregation in WWII, etc.)

This is a hidden treasure in Wichita. The museum has a diverse collection that is startling in its international depth. It also specializes in US history of the civil war and the World Wars. Especially enjoyed the ancient history of Egypt. Good international religions section. Even the dinosaur exhibit is spectacular.

This was simply more than my wife and I could look at while traveling through Wichita on a vacation. Had we been able to stay another day I would have liked to return to look at the various displays in more detail. The sectioned off variety from world wars, space, presidents, biblical artifacts, dinosaurs, movie stars, rocks, sports, civil war... More

Loved this quirky museum! Lots of variety and a lot more interesting than i expected. A decent amount of hands-on stuff for younger kids.

Awesome place to enlighten your mind, no matter what your interest is there is something here for you ! “Coffee with the curator” is a great way to learn the story behind the story. Whether you’re a Wichita native or just visiting every trip is a new experience.
