Always enjoy a visit here. The family usually visits on Saturday when it is free. We spend an hour or so reviewing the art from different time period and talk as a family about what we are seeing. Enjoy it every time we go.

When I walked into the building I liked the interior architecture and then I noticed the Dale Chihuly floor and it took my breath away. You have to take off your shoes to walk on it and it was worth it.

I'm not an art person, but this place had some interesting paintings and sculptures even I enjoyed looking. Very clean and I hear the cafe offers some nice meals/desserts.

We are fortunate to have an exceptional art gallery in downtown Wichita close to the river. It's a venue for lovely lunches as well as viewing all the fabulous art works. Have lunch with friends and enjoy the charming atmosphere

This museum has a very impressive collection of american artists. It is a small museum but definitely, worth visiting. They have a couple of incredible Chihuly's. I did not try the restaurant but was told it is a great place to grab a bite as well, from the outside looks like a terrific place for lunch.

This was my first visit to the Wichita Art Museum and will definitely not be my last. There was a little of everything: paintings, bronzes, glass, and more. For me, one of the highlights was the Chihuly glass above the lobby; this same installation piece also serves as an incredible walkway on the second floor. Another impressive exhibit featured many...

A wonderful art museum with amazing works by artists you know, and some surprises along the way. My group visiting Wichita on business loved the after-hours event at the Wichita Art Museum.

There is something for everyone at the Wichita Art Museum. It features a variety of artistic works in its permanent collection, but also has some innovative art forms in its visiting displays. There is free admission on Saturdays. Inside on the upper level is a cafe that overlooks some of the new garden spaces that have been created during the... More
