Just a small, fine mix of fine, small things.... well, the T-Rex isn't small but the rest across its three floors us all human sized (or less). Great for kids.... And adults who like to read all the signs. Bit expensive though.....

Surprised at the variety of artifacts - from WWII to mummies to dinosaurs. I agree with others... give yourself a few hours to fully view all.

This is a must-see stop if you are near Wichita. Such an unusual gathering/collection of stories & items from around the world. Everything from "Logan" the 34' long Tylosaurus to 2 real Egyptian mummies to a history of Greek coins. We loved it, and our kids would have too if they'd been along. Diana at the front desk made us... More

We go here every few months and are never disappointed. It's a very large museum, so give yourself a few hours. You'll be surprised at all the unique artifacts we have here in Wichita.

Exhibits are amazing. The mummies were very interesting to look at. The tour guide was a little pushy and literally as soon as our tour was over, she kicked us out.

This museum turned out to be more fascinating than I thought it would be. It is great for all ages and there's something for everyone from pianos to dinosaurs to presidents pictures with funny facts under them and everything in between.

I was very impressed with the kind of items this museum had. My friend and I ended up spending 3 hours just by looking and reading about each item, including mummies, minerals, and Elvis' handkerchief. Curators are ready to assist the visitors and they are quite knowledgeable to answer any questions you may have.

There is something for everyone's interests and for all ages. The dinosaur exhibit is very good. Meeting Stan and Ivan (T-rex) is so cool. It's great that someone's collecting passion can be enjoyed by all. Take your kids and let them pose as king and queen. It should appeal to the child in all of us. The docents are so... More

Nothing in this Museum should be missed. The most under utilized museum in Wichita should be the most frequented
