It’s rare that a museum or exhibition can transport you to another time, but Old Cowtown Museum in Wichita does just that. The venue has what seems to be a preserved Western frontier town from the 1860’s on display with artifacts, replicas, and staff dressed in period costumes. Guests can walk through multiple businesses like an old-time barber shop, saloon, and more.
Throughout Old Cowtown, visitors can see more than 10,000 artifacts from textiles to furniture and tools. Visitors will learn all about the transformation of Wichita from a cattle town to what it is today.
Cowtown is open Tuesday through Sunday and closed on Mondays throughout the regular season. In the winter months, the museum is closed Sundays and Mondays. Admission to the museum is $7.75 for adults, $6 for seniors and kids ages 12-17, and $5.50 for children ages 5-11. Kids under 4 can experience Old Cowtown for free.
