If you enjoy viewing art, put the Wichita Art Museum on your list when visiting Wichita. The museum is stocked with paintings of interest and other art objects as well as special exhibitions. I found the size of the museum to be perfect - large enough to keep me well-occupied, but not so large as to make me feel overwhelmed with too many choices - just right for my level of physical endurance. The staff is very accommodating. The museum includes a well-stocked gift shop as well as cafe.

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.

The Wichita Art Museum name was enough to draw us in. The exhibits would certainly be enough to keep us coming back if we lived here. There are several collections of glass, paintings, artifacts, dresses, and other items; each unique and amazing. The current "Light and Shadow" exhibit is extremely cool, and the Chihuly Glass chandelier and bridge are also something unusual.
