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.

The museum is in a beautiful location not far from downtown and on the Arkansas River. There are multiple exhibits which were very interesting. The student groups seemed to really enjoy themselves and did not distract from our visit

They had a wonderful special show by an artist who painted in the 1830s and 1840s named Carlin. His subject was buffaloes and the native-american tribes from that period. There is a good cafe in the Museum and the building and setting are lovely. It is across the street from the Old Cowtown Museum and the Native American Museum. See... More

The Wichita Art Museum has a great collection that is displayed throughout the galleries. The most visible showpieces are the stunning Chihuly bridge and chandelier, but do visit all of the galleries as they hold some fantastic art. Current exhibitions are great and very interesting. Staff are friendly and helpful. Excellent gift shop. Did not try the cafe but will... More

All the exhibits were beautiful. The different types of creations takes my breath away. You can learn a lot by reading the little descriptions of the artist and the piece.

Look up when you pay for entry and SEE the Chihuly Glass walkway from below. I missed it the first time. I loved the exhibits and Impressionist work. And the Dale Chihuly Chandelier is not to be missed. A special museum I did not expect to see in Kansas.
