  • The exhibits are very organized, and most of them are easy to read. Located inside a gorgeous historic building, across the street from the current Downtown Public Library. I found the multiple levels of the museum somewhat confusing and difficult to navigate. Parking is tricky... feed the meter weekdays 8am - 5pm , Holidays & Weekends STREET Parking is Free.
  • Not that interesting. Best part of it is the outside of the builiding. Nothing inside seems original.
  • What a gem! This laid back museum is chalked full of great ICT memorabilia, there are so many exhibits. Could've easily spent hours reading the in-depth display discriptions inside Wichita- Sedgwick Co Museum. Don't forget to relax in Herritage Park, it's attatched to the Museum building. We went on a weekend and got a good discounted rate through Groupon.
  • We really enjoyed this museum. I would definitely recommend visiting at least once.
  • Love the history this place has to share
