  • Only open on the weekend with a few indoor exhibits. However, the stars here are the train engines and cabooses that you can explore. Wear a hat as there is little shade. You must be able to walk.....  more »
  • As you drive through downtown Wichita you will come under an overpass with a beautiful steam locomotive. The parking is easy the people are great. Inside the building are lots of memorabilia...  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!
