Excellent museum for a medium sized city. Beautiful building inside and out. Easy to get around in, changing displays & quality displays. Don't miss the gift store, not real large but displayed well and great quality. Also don't miss the lunch at the restaurant. It is one of our favorites in Wichita. Lots of easy parking.

The Art Museum was one of our planned stops in Wichita. It concentrates on regional art and has a nice sampling, with some very good pieces.

The Wichita Art Museum is quite nice for the size of the city. It's obvious not going to comparee with those in large cities such as New York, Boston, Chicago or San Fransisco, but it has a good collection, is well curated, and is a great outing for locals and visitors to Wichita. 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

I love the tables that overlook the river. Im so glad we have this art museum in Wichita located in a beautiful setting near other great... 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.
