We really enjoyed our visit here. There are pieces from various periods of time including some prehistoric exhibits. It's a bit small so take your time because it's easy to miss stuff in those tight spaces. The staff is extremely friendly and knowledgeable. We are considering a membership!

Our last stop in the Hall of Presidents was the most fun. You may want to see it first. From Washington to Obama there are excerpts of their terms, famous documents and wise or outrageously funny quotes.

Could have spent all day touring the 3 floors of museum. Everything from the dinosaur age, Roman , Greek, Oriental, Egyptian, American history - can 't recall all. Third floor seemed work in progress as switched to music , American cowboys, gangsters, authors - all in all whatever your interest- something was there.

Something for everyone to see and nerd out about. Parents got their pictures done in front of the red curtains between two armored knights. We loved the first floor, dad appreciated the second floor being an army veteran. If you have little ones I guess there would be something for them on the third. Great to check out. Spend two...

My 12 year old niece requested that we go here. She had been before in a school field trip. Nice variety of museum pieces with appropriate signage to explain. From fossils to Egyptology to multiple wars, this is big enough to inform but not so big as to bore kids to death.

I went with my son on his school trip! I think I had more fun than the kids. It was just so neat to see all of the world treasures they had inside. I had no idea. I loved it would definitely recommend going!!!

Very interesting museum which some unusual artifacts. This museum is located in a revitalized area of downtown Wichita and is close to all the other museums. Is close to many restaurants. This museum is probably better suited for teenagers than younger children. It was a good value for the cost.

This was such a nice surprise this museum was right across from our hotel. We were there for a couple hours wandering through seeing all kinds of interesting treasures. Very well put together for the price of admission. Was very nice. I would recommend this museum to anyone.

We visited the Museum of World Treasurers in Wichita, KS and found 3 floors of very interesting exhibits. There were fossils and dinosaur remains, Egyptian treasures and mummies, Roman antiquities, WW I and II exhibits, Presidential exhibits, a piece of the Berlin wall and so much more. We were totally fascinated by everything! It is in the middle of Old... More
