Many cities have museums. Wichita has the one and only, never to be duplicated again, Old Cowtown Museum! You will be wowed when you step onto Cowtown’s dirt roads and realize you’ve entered a world off the Chisholm Trail that is frozen in a 1865-1880 loop.
There is something for everyone at Old Cowtown. You can connect with history through artifacts in Cowtown’s 10,000 piece permanent collection – textiles, furnishings, furniture, tools, art – that are proudly maintained by Historic Wichita Cowtown, Inc. Cowtown’s unique programming tells the story of Wichita’s transformation from a frontier settlement to a cattle town to an agricultural and manufacturing area.
Wichita’s storied past is vividly brought to life through daily activities, special events and education programs.
