Visit the Wichita Art Museum

The Wichita Art Museum opened in 1935. It is home to The Roland P. Murdock Collection, one of the premier collections of American Art in the country.

Check out this Ongoing Exhibition: Heritage of the West: A Romance Gone Forever: The M.C. Naftzger Collection of Paintings, Sculptures and Drawings by Charles M. Russell.

You will experience the turbulent and thrilling themes of everyday life during the settlement of the American West. This exhibit represents a cross section of Charles M. Russell's stylistic development over a period of 30 years, from 1896 through 1926.

The Museum is proud to be supported through public and private funds, owned by the City of Wichita and managed by a private entity, Wichita Art Museum, Inc. Located at 1400 West Museum Boulevard, the Museum and Museum store are open Sunday noon – 5 p.m., and Tuesday through Saturday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is free through September 30 and scheduled school groups are always free.

See you in the Kansas Flint Hills! ;-)
