The Wichita art museum has offered so many things to our community in the display of fabulous artwork with the added benefit of stopping in for a cuisine luncheon with friends. It has excellent lunch fare in a fabulous setting

A nice collection of artwork in a variety of mediums. I especially loved the Chihuly pieces. It was wonderful to see his glass and also his unique drawing collection. It appears that most of the collection is modern / American, there is a nice pre Columbian artifact collection.

There are some great pieces here and a nice variety to see from glasswork to sculpture to pencil drawings, to oils and watercolors. I especially enjoyed the Jesse Alexander exhibit that is there now with photography of motorsports. Really classic! I enjoyed this the most. The Chihuly drawings were intriguing, and I liked his colorful paintings. I peaked my head... More

I love the Wichita Art Museum. The Muse restaurant is very tasty and the view overlooks the new art garden. The exhibits change out on a regular basis and there are a number of special events to peak anyone's interest. Music in the new art garden is a pleasant surprise and there are a number of children's events throughout the... More

The museum itself is beautiful, and the restaurant was excellent. The range of exhibits ran from traditional art through the best Chihuly I have ever seen, and I have been to several. A surprisingly excellent museum.

My membership at the Dayton Art Institute earned me free admission to the Wichita Art Museum (those reciprocal agreements are really great!). The facility is beautiful and the permanent collection of American art is quite good. The Charles M. Russell exhibit of western art, sculpture and illustrations was an unexpected bonus. The Chihuly drawings were really amazing. And while I'm... More

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
