It’s an event we look forward to each year around back-to-school time. The Museum of World Treasures Customer Appreciation Day is an opportunity to explore all the strange, quirky, fascinating and fun artifacts collected right here in Wichita, Kansas at a discount!
The museum houses an eclectic collection that defies description – here you can see John Wayne’s suit, an Egyptian mummy, a shrunken head (!), dinosaurs, western memorabilia, items from military history, and more. If you haven’t been yet, this is a great opportunity. At this price it’s a real bargain.
On Customer Appreciation Day, admission is discounted to just $5. But also, the museum will have special activities for kids, educational presentations, and more. It’s a great day to visit, and at almost 70% off the regular adult admission price, it’s a great deal!
This year, the Museum of World Treasures Customer Appreciation Days will be held Wednesday, September 2 through Saturday, September 5. That’s 4 customer appreciation days!
Please note: Since things change so frequently, be sure to use the links we provide in each post to double-check all events before you go.
Families and adults of all ages are welcome.
Masks are required and other safety measures will be in place.
Two other perks you’ll get on Customer Appreciation Day are 30% off on memberships and museum branded items in the Museum Store. (They often have kids’ programs that are free with membership – ask them about what they have planned for this year.)
Do bring your camera, but ask the staff about where photography is available and make sure to turn off the flash. Flash can damage these ancient treasures and we don’t want to do that!
The Old Town Farmer’s Market will also be open on Saturday morning, right outside the front door of the museum, so show up early to enjoy that too.

Times: 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
