There is only one museum in Wichita and maybe the whole Kansas state that features such a wide variety of exhibits and collections. The Museum of World Treasures has not only dinosaur fossils, and other natural objects on display, but also some artifacts from all over the world: Asia, Europe, Central America, North America and so on.

The building has 3 floors, you should check their exhibitions pages to see which are the ones that you're most interested in and explore those areas. Kids that are not very keen on reading would be a bit bored, because many of the objects have long reading materials.

Address:
835 E 1st St N, Wichita, KS 67202, USA

Price:
$8.95 for adults, $6.95 for kids. (without tax)

Opening Hours:
Daily from 10am to 5pm (Sun from noon)
