Wichita Art Museum Reviews
1st time there & will definitely go back. Not the largest museum, but very impressive collection. The depression era photography exhibit was great. Very solid permanent collection. Gift shop is great. more »
It does not have huge galleries, but what they have is very interesting. Currently they have a great Georgia OKeeffe art exhibit. Don't miss it. more »
The Wichita Art Museum is a fun place to take family and friends to, it is free on Saturdays. They always have new exhibitions and if you are a student or under 17 you get in for free which is awesome. Being an artist myself, I find this is a great place to be creative as well as admire the pieces. There is a cute little gift shops which has tons of unique and fun items. There is also a small cafe as well. All the staff here are very nice & welcoming!
Very nice art museum. Good kid area. Good exhibits. Nice cafe. Seems like this one doesn't go too far with the graphic art of the City of Austin art museums etc. Nice view of downtown from the museum. Was impressed.
