Admission is free on Saturdays (paid for... More

I had a few hours to spend before a flight out so a girlfriend and I went here mainly to see the Chihuly glass. The chandelier was awesome as expected, but the museum also had a section of floor with his pieces installed between two layers of glass so you could see it from below and walk on it from... More

One would not expect such a nice art museum in city like Wichita. Collection is ample and features great pieces of the art. It is great place to spend 2-3 hours during weekend.

The place is spacious, and the art work feels a bit lost in the area. Decent enough paintings, nothing special. The best part of the visit is the walk from town along the river, admiring the displays along the city side of the river, 'til you get to the museum.

We go there for a relaxing and excellent meal at comfortable prices! They always have specials for the day and they are home made and a great value! Great Chicken salad!

I love museums. I was in and out of here very fast. Not much to see unless you are into glass. Best part was free admission on Saturday.

We enjoyed how relaxed the atmosphere felt while we walk leisurely through the museum. The best part was walking on the glass bridge, it was a fun experience! We took our year old little girl and the staff couldn't have been more welcoming of us.
