We were in for quick stay in Wichita so looking for something local. Very very cool old paper factory houses the collection of interesting stuff. Worth the low admission of $10 a person. Mummies & dinosaurs were fantastic!

There are displays of dinosaurs, presidents, wars and the old west. We spent several hours. If you have limited time, choose a section.

Was thinking the boys would not enjoy this as there were no activities other than a few kid games. By the end of the visit they were all saying how much they enjoyed the day at the museum!

Military history buff might like this...Rest is rather dull. Wichita has free museum day once or twice a year. Just wait until then.

My expectation were greater with this museum. My daughter enjoyed her time. But I really thought it would have showed more. The war floor wasn’t the greatest except for the uniforms probably. The dinosaurs were nice.

Such an amazing variety of items on display here that there should be an area or time period of interest to almost everyone. The museum is laid out so you work your way chronologically through history. It is well worth a visit.

I took my 3 grandsons ranging in age from 5 to 8. They were in complete awe of the dinosaur bones. The exhibits are quite well done. Many found in Kansas itself. They also spent a good deal of time dressing up in the Children's...More

First floor has the unique finds - like shrunken heads, trophy heads, an extensive mummy collection, an impressive buddha collection, and lots of dinosaur stuff. 2nd floor is very well done with military, war, soldier stuff, etc. The middle ages area is pretty much non-existent...More

I do not remember costs however I think they are low. They have an elevator that is available to get you to every floor. You will enjoy it.
