  • Grab bag of a museum with little to link each exhibition to the last. However, still good fun! Selection of quizzes and activities to keep child and adult interested. This museum gets 100% out of the collection. Not world class so I can't five 5/5 but a strong 4. Please solve the puzzle in the picture 'cos it stumped me!
  • They have some cool stuff, but it's not laid out very well and the exhibits aren't very professional. The kids area is amazing though! The WWII and Vietnam exhibits are both really good. The T-Rex is reality cool but hard to appreciate because it's crammed in a small area. My kids enjoyed it, but they did comment that it was dark.
  • Our kids were a little too young to fully appreciate the amazing amount of information and collections in this museum. That being said, it has a ton of really cool and interesting things to look at. Look forward to a return trip when our kids are a bit older.
  • We had a blast visiting this museum a couple weeks ago! While on our (roundabout) way to Kansas City to visit family, we stayed a free nights on Wichita and thoroughly enjoyed our visit. There were so many learning opportunities for our 7 year old daughter from dinosaurs to American history and everything in between. We will definitely be back!
  • The museum was great they had the color guard there along with the honored hero's and the museum exhibit. The kids loved it.
