Our Mission is to provide a gateway to the past that educates, entertains and inspires lifelong learning.
The Museum of World Treasures opened its doors for the first time on April 22, 2001 at the Garvey Center in downtown Wichita, Kansas. Two years later – due to tremendous growth – the museum relocated to what is affectionately known as the Farm & Art Market. The historic building is located in the Old Town district of Wichita, just east of downtown and was converted from a warehouse as were most of the multiuse buildings in the district. The area is an eclectic mix of restaurants, shops, clubs, museums and theaters along with a growing urban base that are making their homes in the many converted historic loft condominiums. While the Museum of World Treasures is young, you will find it has packed a great deal into its first seven years and the artifacts you will witness here stand as testament to this fact. Guided tours and group discounts available. Other activities: Camp-ins, educational children’s programs, rotating exhibits, treasure hunts to stimulate the inquiring mind and engage our visitors.
The Museum of World Treasures is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) Kansas corporation. Tax-deductible donations go directly to support the museum’s many educational programs.
