Sedgwick County Zoo

To inspire discovery, appreciation, and respect for animals and nature.

Reviewed By David S - Piedmont, South Dakota

I'm not particularly a zoo person - but my wife is. I was pleasantly surprised that this zoo was not only just right sized - could be visited entirely in 2-3 hours but it was also well thought out. Animals are separated by area of origin and efforts have been made to tailor both the animal enclosures and the human areas to reflect those geographic origins.

Reasonable admission price and free parking.

Karg Art Glass

Reviewed By Deacon/Chef - Savannah. GA

Unexpected display of hand worked glass pieces. Serious art pieces hoeing impressive selection of styles and techniques. Seriously exceeded our expectations and turned out to be a real high point of our trip. Definitely highly recommended, especially if you are there and can watch the artisans work the glass.

Elderslie Farm (Blackberry Farm)

Elderslie Farm is a blackberry farm 20 minutes north of Wichita, KS. During the blackberry season we welcome visitors to join us for You-Picks (roughly mid-June to mid-July - reservations required on the website). We also sell blackberries at the Bramble Cafe when they are in season.

Enjoying conversation in the car, as we drove out to the farm, prepared us to enter into a magical evening. Holding hands along the meandering pathway to the farmhouse heightened the mood as we soaked in the beauty of the Kansas farm flowers. Upon entering the farmhouse, we were stunned with the handcrafted walnut furnishings, made right upon the farm. Our tastebuds were tantalized as each of the, expertly prepared with local ingredients, 5 courses, was brought forth with a perfect pairing of wines. The spectacular service, the delectable foods, the serene and gently paced setting, three hours of laughter and joy with people we love, all made for a perfect birthday celebration, I didn't want to end. We cannot wait to go back and experience Elderslie Farm again!!

Botanica: The Wichita Gardens

Located in Sim Park, this gorgeous patch of cultivated flora offers themed gardens such as the Butterfly Garden, Shakespeare Garden, Rose and Wildflower Garden and the award-winning Sally Stone Sensory Garden, plus special programs for children.

Reviewed By Matthew C

Botanica is a wonderful place to be alone with your thoughts. I would highly recommend visiting for the Christmas light display. The team spends a lot of effort turning the park into a winter wonderland.

The Keeper of the Plains

The Keeper of the Plains stands at the confluence of the Big and Little Arkansas rivers with hands raised in supplication to the Great Spirit. Renowned Kiowa-Comanche artist Blackbear Bosin donated the Keeper of the Plains to the citizens of Wichita on May 18, 1974.Since the sculpture's installation to commemorate the United States Bicentennial, it has become a symbol for the city of Wichita and a tribute to the local American Indian tribes. in 1974. A complete renovation of the sculpture and installation of the Keeper of the Plains Plaza now brings people out each evening to see the Keeper and the "Ring of Fire." The 44-foot Cor-Ten steel Keeper of the Plains statue is now 30 feet higher than before with its new pedestal,surrounded by a plaza which describes the Plains Indian way of life. The Keeper also serves as the focal point of an eight-year, $20 million restoration and river beautification project completed in May 2007. Pedestrians can access the area via two bow-and-arrow-inspired cable-stay bridges which span the Little and Big Arkansas rivers. Fire drums on boulders at the foot of the Keeper dramatically light the night. Plantings of sage, bottlebrush, medicinal herbs, prairie grasses, yuccas and cactus add to the sense of place and time. The area is free and open to the public year-round.

Reviewed By Denise W - Oklahoma City

This is a beautiful lighted night time delight. The Keeper of the Plains is well light and visible for a distance. There are paved sidewalks along the river where the Keeper of the Plains overlooks. There are beautiful bridges to the small island that hosts the Keeper of the Plains. On the small island is a display of Indian related trivia. There's also an exhibit of signs Indians used to communicate on caves and they tell a story along with the translation. We were there in February so the fire and water 'show' was not active. Would love to see them in action! Nice break for an evening stroll weather permitting.

The Museum of World Treasures, with more than 3,000 artifacts on three floors. Discover your inner explorer!

Reviewed By TheBlackCondor - Colorado Springs, Colorado

This place is really cool. They have a ton of stuff for such a small place, and I was told that's about 25% of the entire collection! They really should find a bigger building.

The first floor is all about history, with mostly complete dinosaur skeletons, and artifacts from ancient Greece, the Orient and Egypt (with two real mummies!).
The second floor is mostly about wars (WW1, WW2, Civil War, etc.). There's also a hall of presidents where they have little fact cards about each that I went through and was thoroughly entertained.

Third floor has some more WW2 stuff and some random things from movies and such. There's also a little room where kids have some stuff they can play with.

Unfortunately, my 3 y/o son got bored and I had to cut my reading short (there's a lot to read!) so we could go. I could have spent another hour at least looking at things. This place is nice for some of the exhibits, but most of the war stuff on the 2nd and 3rd floor wouldn't interest young children (or even teenagers, unless they are studying this particular subject at school and might have an interest).

Accreditation recognizes high standards in individual museums and ensures they continue to uphold public trust. Only 3 percent of the nation's estimated 34,144 museums are accredited.

This is an 20th c outdoor architectural museum. It is arranged in a residential neighborhood, a downtown and a farm. Some buildings like the residential have been moved there, others recreated. Downtown has all kinds of stocked up artisan shops, bank, hotels, dancehall, even a working train station. The Masonic Lodge featured a Mason fellow who was chock full of lore. The farm has a farmhouse, barn, outbuildings and a smaller stock area. It is all well done and seemingly a work in progress as they seem to be adding and improving all around.

We went on a blustery day threatening rain, so it was sparsely crowded. We were told some days were quite crowded. It would be fine for kids. There's food and refreshments. We had sarsaparilla.

Exploration Place

Delve into hundreds of interactive exhibits that stimulate the mind and teach about science, and that's only inside the main building. Outside there's a park where visitors can observe Kansas wildlife in a wetlands habitat and dig for archeological treasures inside a giant sandbox.

Reviewed By Alex N

This was a very interactive and entertaining place. It would be very good for younger kids. I don’t believe older kids would be entertained for too long, it had smaller, interactive exhibits that took roughly 5 minutes to complete or be tired of. It was a good experience and worth going to. Prices are also not too bad.

This is such a wonderful place. I don't believe I have ever paid admission to any of their events. The Pollinator Party is super fun, the guided nature walks are very informative, and there are a ton of summer programs! We've seen a live beaver in the auditorium, movies on wetlands creatures, etc...they have so many neat talks by their naturalists, so many cool presentations. There's a neat aquarium indoors where the kids can see various fish and turtles, and there's a cool little "museum" where you can explore animal horns and shells, bird calls, types of trees, etc.

Outside of the building, there is a lovely nature walk. They have multiple routes with varying distances, so everyone of all fitness levels and abilities can enjoy. I highly recommend spending some time at the ponds watching the turtles, fish, ducks, geese, etc. You can see all kinds of bugs, plants, and other critters if you pay attention here.

The Owl's Nest gift shop is fantastic! They have many nature guides, a lot of them local! They sell t-shirts, stuffed animals, jewelry, all kinds of stuff. The staff is very knowledgeable, so if you have questions don't hesitate! They are also very helpful and pleasant.

Be sure to look up and see the activities available when planning your trip here. You'll find craft and story times, guided walks, nature films, all kinds of neat things! Also, don't forget to pick up your free pocket guide from either the front desk or the gift shop. You get one free guide with each visit, and they're informative little guides on local wildlife and plants.

Wichita Art Museum

The largest art museum in Kansas offers a sizeable collection of pieces by American painters, potters, sculptors, and textile weavers. Mary Cassatt, Arthur G. Dove, Thomas Eakins, Robert Henri and Winslow Homer are just a handful of the talented artists in our permanent collection. For information about our current exhibitions please visit our website.

Reviewed By Heliodorus - Dallas, Texas

We visited the museum in late August and were very pleasantly surprised. The museum staff were very friendly and welcoming and the building is architecturally interesting. The collection is small but has some real gems. I particularly enjoyed seeing 20th century paintings from the Midwest. There were several magnificent portraits from the Depression and Dust Bowl era that deserve wider reputations. The Chihuly glass bridge was really beautiful with the afternoon sun shining through. We saw the entire collection thoroughly in about two hours--we're slow--and appreciated the curators' notes.

I normally don't comment on museum shops but the Wichita Museum's shop was well worth a stop. Original and creative works of art and great gifts. And very nice personnel.
