Learned so much about Wichita's history with aviation. Lots of planes to see and many interesting areas that give detailed history. more »
My train loving 6 year old absolutely loved it! The volunteer who was working was so helpful and full of information about the museum and trains in general. I learned quite a bit myself and my son had so much fun interacting with the exhibits and watching trains go by.
I have heard of the Transportation Museum but had never went even though I'm a life long Wichitan. I was very pleasantly surprised! There are steam engines and a ton of cabooses that you are allowed to go in. The people who work there are very pleasantly and informed about their trains. You can tell they LOVE their job! There is even a WWII train section. It's a great location, fairly priced, and a gem to the Wichita community. My kids loved it and want to go back! I would highly recommend the Great Plains Transportation Museum. The view is also great!
