Visit the Wichita Sedgwick County Historical Museum for spring break! They’ll have special programs for kids and families.
Admission is free, but capacity is limited, so please email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your place.
Kids are invited (parents too) to these special spring break activities at the Wichita-Sedgwick County Historical Museum. The spring break events are appropriate for 2nd graders and up.
Each event below is from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. and participation is FREE; however, space will be limited so registration is highly recommended! You can go to one or to all three of these.
- Tuesday, March 12, you can “Cowboy Up!” and join the museum educators for some fun. Kids will learn about the lives of early settlers and cowboys during a special tour of the museum, then they’ll make a buffalo silhouette in a Kansas sunset, play Cowboy Blackjack, and savor a Buffalo Chip cookie. (ha ha!) There’s a limit of 18 participants, so you’ll want to register immediately for this one.
- Wednesday, March 13 “Celebrate Wichita!” with the museum. Kids will take a tour of special exhibits, make a Wichita flag, play Musical Chairs to Wichita songs, and savor a sugar cookie. Again, a limit of 18 participants means this spring break activity will fill up fast.
- Thursday, March 14 Go “Victorian Style!” in the seven-room Victorian cottage at the museum and see up-close how life was lived in Wichita 125 years ago. Kids will play low-tech skill games like Old Maid, Pick Up Sticks, and marbles, and enjoy a sugar cookie or some horehound candy. Space is limited to 18 participants, so hurry to sign up for this spring break event.
The following event is from 3-4 p.m. and participants are encouraged to attend all three days. Again, the spring break program is free but registration is required and it will likely fill up very fast.
- March 12, 13, and 14, Learn “The Art of Cursive Handwriting” from 3-4 p.m. All ages are invited to come learn and practice the art of cursive handwriting. An experienced teacher will guide proper letter formation of upper and lower case letters as well as writing your full name.“Research shows cursive handwriting engages the brain more deeply than printing or typing. Correspondence to friends and loved ones, cursive art, journaling, study notes, and creative writing are only a few of the applications where cursive is useful.”

Time: 1-3 p.m. or 3-4 p.m.
Location: Wichita-Sedgwick County Historical Museum, 204 S. Main, Wichita, Kansas 67202
