Lots of artifacts and lots of information. I will guarantee that when you visit this place you will get more than you expected. The displays are very well organized and informational. Location is perfect for a afternoon in old town so plan accordingly.

We decided to visit the museum for something to do for spring break. Admission is reasonable, about $30 for our family of 4 and we spent abiut an hour and a half looking around. It houses everything from dinosaur skeletons to presidential artifacts to war memorabilia to mummies...my 9 and 12 year old stayed pretty interested throughout our time there.... More

This was one of the best Museums I have been to. Very informative with great exhibits. You could spend all day in here if you wanted. Excellent play area for the kids on the 3rd floor.

Tucked away in Old Town, this museum could be easily missed! Make an effort not to! Inside you will find dinosaurs, greek pottery & pop culture memorabilia. There are so many kid-friendly activities that you could while away an afternoon with you children or grandchildren. Fun and economical!!

A wonderful collection of a wide array of items. Mummies to Vietnam War. Was looking for something to do for a couple of hours. Could have easily have spent many more hours. Am already planning on returning for a Midnight at the Museum.

The kids enjoyed the museum and we'll be returning for sure. It's worth the small fee and educational as well.

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.
