Wichita Art Museum
Nestled in the heart of the Museums on the River district just five minutes from downtown in the Riverside neighborhood, the Wichita Art Museum is home to a nationally renowned collection of American art. As the largest art museum in the state of Kansas, the Wichita Art Museum houses one of the country’s finest collections of American art, spanning three centuries of painting, sculpture, works on paper, and decorative arts. Masterpieces by Mary Cassatt, Winslow Homer, Horace Pippin, Edward Hopper, and Charles M. Russell are among the nearly 7,000 works in the permanent collection. Additionally, an important and expanding glass collection is a significant component to the overall collection.
The Museum features a family-friendly interactive area called The Living Room where visitors can create their own works of art; a unique Museum Store featuring one-of-a-kind jewelry, and a selection of children’s gifts and work by area artists.We hope to see you at the Museum soon!
The mission of the Wichita Art Museum is to be a viable and energetic home for creative dialogue and community interaction with superb American art.
What a great exhibit for Wichita!! I can't tell you how much I appreciate the opportunity to see so many pieces from this period of time. Also, the Rodin's were a wonderful surprise! I visited the Rodin Museum in Paris and love his work! Great job Wichita Art Museum!
We enjoyed seeing the Monet exhibit at the Wichita Art Museum. Loved going on a Saturday for free admission. The chandelier on the 2nd floor is a must see. Nice gift store and cafe.
Beautiful small art museum with an amazing area for the kids to play. The set up of the museum is easy to walk around and the staff was very friendly. Unlike other art museum you can not have bags so you will need to store it in the lockers.
For Wichita's size, the museum has quite a lot of art. It's free on Saturdays and has a hands on kids area. Check out the gift shop, a lot of really unique gifts.
Always fun things to see and do here. Kid art zone is usually pretty popular, especially when a special event is taking place. The glass bridge alone is a highlight in my kids' visit!
