This museum is delightful. There were two great exhibits when I was there. The art space is great and there were some really nice pieces. I had a great lunch there too. There is more art downstairs, I went on Saturday and it was free. It was well worth the trip

Beautiful on the river location with very nice landscaping. Good exhibits. Current picture exhibit by Jesse Alexander of Grand Prix racing cars and famous drivers from the 60's & 70's is very good. Don't miss having lunch at the excellent Cafe. No charge on Saturday.

I had not expected Chihuly Drawings to be so amazing. What a creative genius! Some of his paintings look 3 D are done with techniques he discovered. I loved the two wall of faxes--his preferred way to communicate when sharing his glass designs. If you are a fan of his amazing glass works, you'll see he is equally involved in... More

We went with our adult grandchildren to this museum. It was very beautiful. We especially liked the glass blown pieces of art and the glass bridge over them.

Absolutely Fascinating, took my 12 year old Granddaughter, she loved it as did my wife and I. We spent a day in the place, lot's of cool artwork both old and new. 2D and 3D art everywhere.

Our children enjoyed the informative tour and activity provided to young children. The art is displayed in a relaxating atmosphere- it was quiet, with dim light and the art nicely displayed on walls or shelves. We will definitely be going back. It is free to everyone on Saturdays.

Lovely staff a great gift shop and if you are lucky and the restaurant is open, fabulous food! We managed to be there for their 81st birthday celebrations and they had an "Ice-cream... More

I have visited the Wichita Art Museum for years. They do a magnificent job circulating their exhibits. Every time I have visited I have seen something new. It's a great spot for dates, for friends visiting from out of town, for holidays (I took my father here for Father's Day back in 2010 and then this past year for Mother's... More

We enjoyed this museum, but we might have enjoyed it more if we hadn't just been at the Crystal Bridges Museum of Art in Bentonville, AR. Still, the Wichita Art Museum has some masterpieces in its permanent collection. We were a little disappointed with the temporary Dale Chihuly print exhibit, but we loved the exhibit of mostly black and white... More

The Muse is one of our favorite places to eat in Wichita. The service is always top notch and the food is wonderful. Everything we've eaten there has been prepared with care and attention to detail, from the freshest ingredients. It's quiet and serene (a rare find in today's restaurant world), with a marvelous view from floor to ceiling windows... More
