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

Interesting museum ! Lots of interesting items but the museum is more of a collection of stuff than a museum. Don't get me wrong. It's interesting stuff. Nice way to kill time in Wichita.

Well this place was a bit of a let down. Lots and lots of stuff to see, but kinda disjointed. It seemed like random stuff here and there with little groups of like items. I'd say this place was so-so.

This isn't the most awesome museum I've ever visited, but they had a wide variety of things to look at and it was a fun way to spend a few hours. Some of it was a little confusing with the history aspects, but if you just want to look at the artifacts, you'll like it.

This was an interesting place to visit with an assortment of items to view and get to understand more of the history around us! Because of the displays the Muesum is kept cooler than I had expected and should have worn a light jacket!

They have a little bit of everything. A wonderful assortment of dinosaur fossils, old budda statues, relics from the Roman age, Mayan and Inca, a great military section, etc. Great for all ages

Surprisingly good. I went as this was across the road from my hotel and had no expectations. Thematic and wide ranging exhibits would be perfect for school trips. I was there on my own and enjoyed the dinaosaurs (including the enormous T Rex), the film memorabilia and the information on Kansas in the civil war. There are a few very... More

If you find yourself in Wichita with time to explore this is a must see! The entry price is very reasonable for all this museum has to offer...We wish we would have gotten there a little earlier so we could have spent more time... With 3 floors to explore there is something for everyone !

I took the grandchildren here on a rainy afternoon just for something to do. We were pleasantly surprised at the number, quality and dversity of the exhibits. THis is a great place to help history live for young minds.
