Fine Arts 
This museum has a very extensive and eclectic collection of artifacts from around the world and throughout  time.  You will find fossilized remains going back millions of years and presidential, sports and Hollywood  memorabilia from the last decade with everything in between.  Egyptian mummies, Roman and Greek  artifacts, geological samples, and weapons from all major wars of the Twentieth Century, are just a few of  wonders you will be able to view.  I was pleasantly surprised with the sheer number of exhibits the facility  maintains for the size of the building. They rival the museums of the major cities in terms of the number of  artifacts and you could easily spend the greater part of a day fully exploring what they have to offer.      The Basics  Website: http://www.worldtreasures.org   Phone:  (316) 263-1311  Address:  835 E 1st Street, Wichita, KS 67202 Hours:  Monday-Saturday (10:00am-5:00pm); Sunday (12:00pm-5:00pm)  Cost: Adults $8.95; Children (4-12) $6.95; Seniors (60+) $7.95   This unique museum is in essence a complete town just as you would find one in the Midwest during the late  nineteenth century.  With over fifty buildings it is unlikely you will be able to find a museum of this size and  scope anywhere in the country.  They have multiple furnished period homes, a complete farm, and a main  street with a dentist office, clothing shop, funeral parlor and more.  The Cowtown even has the only  operational wooden grain elevator in the nation.  There are frequent period recreations including a daily  gunfight, they have a full-time blacksmith on site and an actual saloon you can visit for lunch.
