This is a nice sized museum for Wichita, not overwhelming, with a varied exhibit selection, although we personally did not care for the special Nordfelt exhibit, in place during our Oct 2021 visit. The gift shop has many uniquemand reasonably priced items we’ve not seen in other museum shops. The Muse cafe offered great Tiramisu and Italian soda during our afternoon break from exhibit viewing, The outdoor metal sculptures looked agonizing to us, not pleasing, but art is subjective and others may enjoy them. We spent 90 minutes in total here and overall enjoyed the museum.

The Chihuly glass was delightful, and the special exhibit of Art Deco was excellent! The permanent collection was just so-so, but fine. We had lunch here at the Muse Café, and it was hopping! It seems that locals come here just for lunch (i.e., not as part of visiting the museum). Not much for our vegans to eat except for a red hummus plate with veggies and pita, but that was fine. Sometimes a small art museum is nice because it’s not overwhelming; with that said, I wouldn’t come back unless there was a particularly interesting special exhibit.

Perfectly-sized museum for Wichita! Not overwhelming, but comfortable and you can leisurely spend an entire afternoon on the lawns, or in the cafe .. ..

Two floors of the art, and other treasures, that shaped the area .. .. Pleasantly surprised by the collections and could have stayed longer .. ..

And, find the WICHITA visitors magazine and they even had a $3 off coupon .. .. If you have a decent-sized family, it can save you a nice amount .. ..

THANKS W.A.M!!

Very nice and well organized museum featuring some very good American artists. The exhibits flow nicely and the art is not just all jammed together. The Steuben glass exhibit is really nice as is the collection of pre-Colombian pottery. If you go on Saturday, there is no charge for admission to the permanent exhibits!

We really enjoyed our visit to the Wichita Art Museum. We decided to go to see the Chihuly glass floor. It's beautiful! And it was fun to walk on the top of it. The Preston Singletary exhibit was another highlight. I love Native American art and his Raven in a Box exhibit was spectacular. The museum isn't large but has a nice collection of American art including paintings, woodblock prints, glass and dresses.

We visited the museum during their ice sculpting event. It was fun to see the various creations by local ice sculpting artists and teams of artists. The creations were abstract but reflected talent and innovation. Food trucks were on site for guests. It was a free, fun family-friendly event. There was even a chunk of ice for the kids to sculpt.

Wow, surprisingly well curated museum. Irving Penn was being exhibited when we visited Wichita for Christmas. Lots of Edward Hooper, American and artist. Beautiful building in museum row near Riverside Park and close to downtown Wichita. Great family outing. I’ve never been here and will come back.
I wish they would provide outreach to people of color because as a kid growing up here I wasn’t exposed to this and know there are many artistic POC in Wichita that would full appreciate it.

We visited The Wichita Art Museum this afternoon and, as always, came away inspired and informed. We first had a delightful and relaxing lunch at The Muse (food delicious and service attentive and professional) and the spent two hours absorbing the art! The traveling exhibition featuring photographs from the Depression by D. Lange, W. Evans and other FSA photographers, starkly recording the hardships and woeful living conditions of so many during those years was eye-opening and important! WAM is a true Wichita treasure!

My wife and I were in Wichita visiting our daughter for the weekend. She suggested a trip to the Museum; normally this would not be at the top of my list for entertainment, but I must say the entire experience was very enjoyable. Excellent displays, nicely laid out, very modern in design and feel, and no admission charge on this particular day all made for a satisfying experience. I especially enjoyed the Kansas Land and Heritage of the West exhibits. And lunch at the Muse Cafe was delicious, and reasonably priced, too. All in all, a great way to spend a Saturday afternoon.
