The Wichita Art Museum is the largest art museum in Kansas. The museum was established in 1915, opened in 1935,and expanded into the current facility in 2003. The permanent collection includes more than 6,000 works of art, but large portions of the museum are devoted to traveling or temporary exhibits such as Regions of Illusion: The Drawing of Steven Graber and there are usually several temporary exhibits at the same time.
The Wichita Art Museum is roomy and light, a place where both adults and children feel comfortable and find works of interest.
Handheld, non flash, still photography is permitted in several of the Wichita Art Museum permanent galleries, but photographers must register at the museum's entrance. There is no admission charge for student groups on pre-arranged tours, or to visit the Museum Cafe, Museum Store or Library.
The Cafe at the Wichita Art Museum is open Tuesday through aySun from 11 AM - 3 PM, with a limited menu from 2-3PM. Brunch specials are available on Saturday and Sunday
