Museum had some interesting items and a couple of very educational sections, just wish there was more of it.

The last visit we had to this museum was with a group and we split up and spread out! Our time was limited due to other activities the group had scheduled and could go back and spend hours absorbing the educational displays of things from all around the world as well as some exhibits from closer to home. Something for... More

This museum has lots of interesting exhibits and fun things to attract the kids attention. There is so much information to take in! We spent over 2 hours in the museum and could've stayed longer but the kids got bored. I think the best part for the kids was the dinosaur skeleton at the front entrance. My husband loved the...

We were impressed to see as much stuff from all over the world in Wichita. We learned many new things as it was very educational. We were even surprised by some of the things we saw and learned. It was heartbreaking to read about some things, but that goes to show that the museum wants to show the truth about... More

I had a really good time at this museum. Walking in to see those huge dinosaur skeletons was really amazing! All of the exhibits were interesting and there was a lot of educational information to read. The mummies were awesome, I had never seen one in real life before. The only thing that disappointed me, and thus lowered my rating... More

Having traveled to several big destinations such as Paris, London, Rome, and others and many Mediterranean cruise ports; I haven't spent much time in museums there so this is one museum I can relax and spend time in. Many artifacts and history lessons which I really enjoyed. Wide variety of topics and historical periods.

The displays are not world class... but VAST in scope! It was all very interesting and took all day to meander through the museum, copious amounts of information. The displays were showing their age but it didn't detract from the entertainment we had while we were there.

A T-Rex at the front door is just the beginning of a great time exploring this museum. Our 8 year old grandson was fascinated by the models of the Battleship Arizona and other Pearl Harbor exhibits. My husband spent his time nosing around the gun exhibit. They both agreed I wasted my time wondering through ancient pottery and coins. We... More

The hubs and I stopped by during RiverFest, because the Museum of World Treasures offered a discount for RiverFest button holders. For a long time I have wanted to visit this place, since the outside of the building looked so promising. The first floor had the ancient exhibits. Dinosaur bones, fossils, old pottery, a shrunken head--many of these I have... More
