Our daughter had her wedding reception in their venue. It was a great, centrally located place to have a reception. They set up tables and put out table clothes for us. While the bride and groom were having pix taken the guests could walk through...More

We came here after Mass at Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception on Sunday, April 2, 2017. Wonderful collection of dinosaur fossils, antiquities, wartime memorabilia and even a section of the Berlin Wall. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to MOWT in Wichita!

This museum has a little bit of everything. There's dinosaur fossils, Egyptian sarcophagus, Buddha statues, movie memorabilia war artifacts, and even a shrunken head. Lots of hands on exhibits for the kiddos. Main floor needs to be redone. Its not very organized. A bit expensive...More

The kids did the treasure hunt which kept them interested and occupied in the items. The prize they received was not that cool, but it was a neat place

Family of 5 this time. Kids looked this place up on web and wanted to visit. Great variety of artifacts. HUGE area of military stuff. Very small area for sports. Mummies were neat. Dinosaurs were a favorite for the kids.

A hodgepodge collection. The first floor was definitely the most interesting for my family. My granddaughter enjoyed doing the scavenger hunt. Nice Old Town location.

Hi, we are in our seventies and we spent a couple of hours there and truly enjoyed it. I think 2 or 3 hours to see most everything. We did take our time, but there were some exhibits that we really enjoyed and could have... More
