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.

I hate art. Had to come here because of a college class. It's clean. Nice and friendly staff. Clean, relaxed environment. They don't have a large collection but what they do have seems nice. Not my kind of thing but I suspect if you like art then it will be a cool place to visit for you. I give 5 stars because despite the fact that I hate art, it seems like a nice museum.

Saturday is free entry and went for the first time. Has a nice flow to the area, a lot of different and unique pieces with descriptions behind it all. Definitely worth a visit and look forward to returning.

I love all the exhibits. There's so many pieces! The children's room is inviting. My daughter loved the chihuly bridge. We spent 30 minutes as she walked across it. We went to the gift shop and they showed my daughter a table she could play at while I shopped. I've been many times to the museum both with and without children and I always find something I hadn't seen before!

Love the Wichita Art Museum. It's a great place to spend a quiet couple of hours. On this trip, my son and I took in the "From Monet to Matisse" exhibit, which was fabulous.
