Wichita-Sedgwick County Historical Museum

Wichita's History

The Wichita-Sedgwick County Historical Museum has been housed in Wichita’s original City Hall for the last three decades. Constructed in 1890, this historic-landmark building is considered an exhibit in itself. The museum’s exhibits showcase life in Wichita, from the Wichita Indian tribe to the cowboys who drove their cattle through here, to the dawn of aviation and Wichita’s ascendance as the Air Capital of the World.

For young visitors, the museum sparks curiosity and allows them to relate to a world free from the constraints of time. For adults, the museum offers amusement and perspective.
