Yes! It’s true! Thanks to a really generous donation by Colby Sandlian, everyone gets FREE ADMISSION to Cowtown on Sundays beginning in April through October 2019.
There are some exclusions. They’ll be closed on Easter Sunday, so don’t go then. Admission will also not be free on May 26, September 29, or October 27, because of special events they’re holding those days.
(However, if you’re seeing this in April, be sure to take advantage of a fantastic April membership special for Cowtown. You won’t be restricted to just Sundays, and you won’t believe the price!)
Wichita’s Old Cowtown Museum is an authentic walk back in time to the 1860s and 1870s in Wichita. It isn’t just a building – it’s a whole town, with both real and reproduction buildings and contents that give visitors an accurate historic picture of “the way things used to be” in the Old West.
Costumed history interpreters bring the whole experience to life as you go through the town.
As far as free things to do in Wichita go, this one is near the top of our list.
Cowtown has a lot of fun activities on Sunday, including Vintage Base Ball throughout the summer! (The dates for the games can be found on the museum’s website.)
Be sure to wear your walking shoes, because this is an open-air museum and you’ll be doing a lot of walking.
Plan to spend at least a couple of hours if your goal is to see everything. But of course, with free admission on Sundays you can always make another trip!
Old Cowtown Museum’s hours on Sunday are from HIGH NOON to 5 p.m.
What is your favorite thing at Wichita’s Cowtown? For me it has to be either the stilts outside the schoolyard or the sarsaparilla you can buy in the saloon. Or the horses in the carriage barn. It’s hard to choose.
Date: Every Sunday from April through October 2019 (with a few exceptions)
Time: noon to 5 p.m.
Location: 1865 N. Museum Blvd.
Cost: FREE admission on Sunday afternoon!
