We were in Wichita for a visit while my husband was scouting residency programs and we stopped in here with our boys to kill a couple of hours. Unexpectedly, we wished we'd had more time! This place is deceiving in the amount of quality items they have and it was much bigger than we expected. In our group we had... More

My wife and I took our two grand-daughters (9 & 10 yr olds) to this wonderful museum on a Saturday afternoon. We went on "Customer Appreciation Day" and were glad we did. Not only was our admission discounted, they had several people dressed in costumes and participating with us through out the museum. They had several areas where some very... More

We only had a day to visit Wichita and I'm glad we made a stop here. My 10 year old son really enjoyed this place. Lots to see. There are 3 floors and each floor is filled with history. Stop by here even if you only have an hour. It's worth it.

They have some really cool stuff. Could be a little cleaner/more organized. They're still renovating though. Overall a good experience

I am a native of Wichita and I have seen this place, but I have never went. I will have to say I was pleasantly surprised of all the exhibits in such small area. After you enter the building you will pass threw many artifacts from the civil war to WWII. On the upper level you can see artifacts from... More

Many impressive displays but the wide variety of topics made it hard to stay focussed. I should have limited myself to one area and taken the time to take it all in, instead of completing the whole tour within a couple hours. Kids will definitely enjoy the dinosaurs but quickly get bored with historical stuff. Good for a rainy day,... More

This nice museum has cool stuff from all over. There are grecian urns, mummies, buddha statues, dinosaur bones, and the autographs of every president. Very cool.
