The Museum provides FREE guided tours for all school groups! The Museum is an excellent resource for history projects. The auditorium can be reserved for instruction, and many primary and secondary sources are available to help your students with their research needs. Guided tours can be modified or customized to meet your students’ needs. School Tours have been carefully designed to follow the Kansas Curricular Standards.
A visit to the Museum is great for special projects, extra credit, or primary source research. This special teacher-issued family pass to the Wichita-Sedgwick County Historical Museum provides free admission for you and your students. Simply print it off, fill it in and issue to your students or to yourself for a free visit to the museum! (This pass is not intended for guided tours.)
