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.

If you like glass, you are in for a treat. This museum had most of one floor dedicated to glass art. Some of it was really interesting. The other 2nd floor had a few paintings, some more glass and not much else. It took a whole 20 minutes and cost us $14. Go on Saturdays when it is free. Plan... More

We're art lovers. I love that this museum is family friendly. We could spend hours here with our family and never feel bored. There's a food court, a children's area that is spacious and filled with neat areas for kids to explore, play and create. The best part is that at least one day a week it's absolutely free.
