This is a really nice museum that sits in Wichita's Old Town district. It is very nicely done with a wide variety of exhibits. You start out with prehistoric creatures and work your way through artifacts from ancient Egypt (several cool mummies), Greece, the Roman Empire, African, Asian & South American cultures. There are nice exhibits from the Revolutionary War,... More

Love the exhibits and the vast array of different subject matter. You can be in Egypt one moment and then in a scene from WWI the next. I was very impressed that this caliber of... More

This place is a must if you go to Wichita, Kansas. It has everything and then some. We were so surprised by the amount of things to see here. You better plan 4-5 hours to see everything they have here.From the Berlin wall to Dinosaur's. Put this on your to do list.

This museum has a nice assortment of things to look at. We spent an hour there and that was without spending much time reading on each item. The flow of the layout is a little awkward so you have to do some backtracking. Well worth going to though.
