Museum Of World Treasures Reviews & Ratings
This surprising museum has a little bit of everything. The exhibits include Ivan, one of the most complete and largest T. Rex, other dinosaurs, fabulous sea creatures of the plains, Egyptian artifacts including mummies, and Buddhist and Hindu statues. There is also an interesting presidential section with a replica of the desk made famous by JFK kids. The WWI and WWII displays are very interesting. There are plenty of interactive displays for the kids of all ages. Volunteer Caleb was wonderful in explaining the dinosaur and other exhibits.
This museum seems to be small from outside. But it’s a real treasure with vast collections. Not all museum can attract people’s attention for a long period, but it’s collections are so catchy that your legs may be hurt but your curiosity for exploring more will not cease. Had really great time there at our second anniversary. Dinosaur was huge, like 2/3 floors height. World war history related collections was so informative. I saw the fragments of grenade from war, the tools, dress everything related to world war. America’s president from 1st to present and their well known quotations was a fun reading. Hand writing of Einstein and Darwin was also important find. I saw the real mummy here, which was terrifying. Finally, at museum shop there was a huge map of world, they gave us two pins to point our origins. We pinned our origins and it was really memorable.
This museum has a little bit of everything. They have Ivan the T-Rex, mummies, some of Marilyn Monroe's items, things from the old west, and an awesome collection of ancient jewelry. Of course there is so much more too! And they host unique events. A huge benefit is also their location. The museum is smack-dab in the middle of Old Town so it's surrounded by local eateries an bars. In the summertime, a farmer's market is held directly in front of the museum. There is never a lack of something to do or see when you go. I can't recommend it enough!
This museum has a good amount of educational displays and a good variety. The military section was in depth and objective, plus it had lots of artifacts. The third floor kid area had a dress up stage, puppets, toys, books and coloring pages. The artifacts downstairs were nice. There was fossils, ancient artifacts, pottery, coins, and some geology. It isn’t the hugest museum, but a good sized place. My only complaint was the prices in the gift shop were a bit high. After we visited we went to River City Brewery and had an excellent meal. Very convenient parking was right by both the museum and brewery, making it a wonderful afternoon.
Truly a city treasurer. If you're from Wichita or you're just passing through or visiting and never been to the museum of world treasures. I suggest you go, it is so incredible I can't even start to describe all the wonderful things to see there. From dinosaur bones to Egyptian treasures you really got to go see this place. I had the pleasure of going there with my mom and dad, sister and niece several years ago before it was relocated to the old town district and it was awesome then so I'm sure it's even more awesome now and I am and I'm looking forward to going to Back.
