- THE WICHITA-SEDGWICK COUNTY HISTORICAL MUSEUM
204 S Main Street
Wichita, KS 67202-3716
This is the old city hall, heavy stone building decorated with turrets, gargoyles and arches. The cosy interior is crammed with exhibits on everything from the Wichita Indians through decorative art to Carry Nation, whose initial zeal for singing hymns to errant drunks grew into a campaign against everything from tobacco to corsets. And it only costs a buck to get in!
- OLD COWTOWN
1871 Sim Park Drive
Wichita, KS 67203-3203
A 17-acre riverside exhibit recreating the buildings of 1870s Wichita. Looking and feeling like a movie set, the area includes -along with some docile Longhorns - the city's first one-room jail, a school room, a store, a smithy, churches and stables, and old homes. This one runs you 5 bucks admission.
