While on a business trip to Wichita, I had a couple hours to myself one afternoon and decided to visit the Museum of World Treasures. I am a fan of museums in general and enjoy visiting museums, especially offbeat museums. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the Museum of World Treasures. Admission is $9 + tax, which I...

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.

The Museum of World Treasures is a nice museum located in Wichita. The cashier was very friendly and helpful. The museum itself has some interesting artifacts from dinosaur bones to the Vietnam War. The admission price was inexpensive. While fun and education, remember that this isn't the Smithsonian Museum or the British Museum.

I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the museum. I had heard of the museum but never been. The place has 3 floors and lots and lots of neat items on display. From fossils and old coins and pottery to Egyptian artifacts to the world wars. I spent several hours and only planned on being there an hour. This... More

It's in Old town so there is a lot to do and drink down there. The museum is beautiful and inexpensive. It has everything from mummies to war memorabilia to Lucile Ball's pearl necklace.

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.
