The museum is in a beautiful location not far from downtown and on the Arkansas River. There are multiple exhibits which were very interesting. The student groups seemed to really enjoy themselves and did not distract from our visit

They had a wonderful special show by an artist who painted in the 1830s and 1840s named Carlin. His subject was buffaloes and the native-american tribes from that period. There is a good cafe in the Museum and the building and setting are lovely. It is across the street from the Old Cowtown Museum and the Native American Museum. See all three. it is worth it.

The Wichita Art Museum has a great collection that is displayed throughout the galleries. The most visible showpieces are the stunning Chihuly bridge and chandelier, but do visit all of the galleries as they hold some fantastic art. Current exhibitions are great and very interesting. Staff are friendly and helpful. Excellent gift shop. Did not try the cafe but will on my next trip. Museum is on the river and the setting is very pretty with art on the grounds as well. Enjoyed it very much!

i was born and raised in wichita, going on school field trips to the art museum so a visit there is like going to see old friends. i remember a lot of the paintings but there are a lot of paintings that have been added. i enjoyed the way the paintings were hung together, related to each other in various ways. i also liked the fact the museum is free on saturdays.
