One step into the Museum of World Treasures takes you out of present day Wichita and into ancient civilizations and the battlefields of World War I. A number of exhibits reside inside the multi-level museum, including an extensive military history exhibit. Meet Ivan, the Tyrannosaurus rex, come face to face with Buddha, or gaze at mummies from ancient Egypt.
Guided group tours help visitors meander through the museum, and seasonal speaking events educate guests on various topics related to science, history, and the arts. The museum offers a number of other educational events, including coffee with the curator, an informal lecture with coffee on the last Thursday of every month.
Admission to the museum is less than $10 with children three and under admitted for free. The museum is open daily until 5 p.m.
