  • This is a very neat place to visit while in town. There is a lot of things to see within the building and good shows to watch too.  more »
  • This is a true gem in Wichita. The building is architecturally significant and is strategically placed along the Arkansas River across from Veterans Memorial Park and in view of Wichita's iconic Keepe...  more »

  • My son did a camp here. As he's gotten older (10), we only visit the museum once a year or so. Despite a chaotic first day drop off, my son had a great time. I found the staff to be friendly and accommodating, even when I had to pick my son up at non-standard times. My son really enjoyed the camp.
  • I think it's cursed. I was having a good day until I got there, and then promptly locked my keys in my car. Fortunately enough I was able to get them out with the help of a locksmith. However the day did not really improve. If you have a family with small kids, I'm sure it's an interesting place to visit. But as a single adult traveling alone, it is a bore. I wanted to get into the flight simulators and I couldn't, they were full of kids. I wanted to walk quietly through the hallways and observe the exhibits. I couldn't it was full of kids. This is a family-friendly facility, and for that reason I give it a high a rating as I do. It is not often that you find decent place to take family anymore. But unless you are interested in an IMAX movie , I actually do not recommend it.
  • Always a fun place to visit. We go about every other month and can easily stay for 2-3 hours each time. They currently (June 23) have a 'hall of heroes' exhibit and it is awesome!
  • Great place for the kids. TONS of hands on for hours of fu. The only problem I had with our visit was we had tickets to the 4 o'clock show. I was told by the guy that it was a 25-minute show. Imagine our surprise when the show started 25 minutes late. All the children in the dome were getting very antsy and frustrated. With starting at for the children would have still had 30 minutes to explore once the show was over. Instead we spent the 30 minutes waiting for a show that started late. It caused our day to be over
  • We visited with 3 adults and 3 kids on a Monday. School kids on field trips were everywhere. The dome shows and the new exhibits were closed. Some of the exhibits were out of order, and the cool stuff was crowded. There was one small snack bar and the prices were high. It was clean though, even the bathrooms. The place was a hit for the elementary crowd. Prices were average for what you get. They offered a military discount.
