Take In The Sights And Sounds
There’s more to Wichita than just aircraft. We are the artistic epicenter of the region, hosting multiple galleries housing work from nationally-recognized artists like John Steuart Curry, Mary Cassatt, Edward Hopper, Winslow Homer and Charles M. Russell. We are also home to the seventh-largest zoo in the country, which has been recognized on an international stage for its efforts in preserving endangered species. Be sure to experience natural science, history, and fun for all ages at Exploration Place on the river. You’ll find plenty to explore during your visit to Wichita, so let your curiosity lead the way.
Nestled in the heart of Wichita sits one of Kansas’ best kept secrets–Botanica, a botanical garden and regional horticultural center. Botanica has quickly become one of the top family destination attractions in the region with events that fill the gardens with themed activities for parents and kids to enjoy together.
