Admission to the Wichita Art Museum is always free on Saturdays, and it’s a wonderful place to go!
Please note: Due to construction, WAM’s main entrance is closed. Enter the museum on the east side of the building through the Living Room doors. Look for the Tom Otterness sculpture Dreamer’s Awake near the doors to the temporary entrance. In addition to WAM’s parking lot, visitor parking is available across Museum Boulevard south of the museum.
The first thing you’ll notice as you enter is the gorgeous colorful glass above your head in the entrance. One of the coolest things about that glass? You can walk on it (in your stocking feet) when you head upstairs! It’s really fun for kids and adults alike.
The Wichita Art Museum has permanent exhibits and temporary exhibits. Occasionally a very special exhibit might not be included in the free admission, but usually this is a completely no-cost way to spend a Saturday in Wichita, and so worth taking the time to do!
During the warmer months, they often offer tours of the outdoor art garden and even have some yoga classes!
WAM’s Saturday hours are 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.
The Museum also has numerous free or cheap kids’ activities/programs throughout the year, as well as activities for adults and sometimes special activities and events for teens.
Wichita Art Museum is located at 1400 West Museum Boulevard, Wichita, KS 67203, (316) 268-4921
(At certain times throughout the year, the Wichita Art Museum may have special exhibitions. You can still get into the main part of the museum free on Saturdays, but the special exhibitions will require an admission fee for adults. Students with ID can often get into these special exhibits free!)
