Kansas Aviation Museum
Aviation was a big part of my family’s lives. Between my father being in the Air National Guard and my mother working at Boeing, I have many fond memories of going out to Boeing or McConnell for family days and being able to step into the aircraft. Little did I know that the Kansas Aviation Museum was right around the corner at 3350 South George Washington Blvd.
I recently stopped by to check it out and there was so much nostalgia all over the place.
In a bit of history, the museum was actually the former Wichita Municipal Airport terminal from 1935 to 1954.
The Kansas Aviation Museum is the place for everything historical about why our city is the Air Capital of the World. Nearly everything on hand has a significant tie to Wichita, including many of the planes on display. They have the Boeing 727, Boeing 747, B-52, KC-135 Statotanker and more. They are spread throughout the museum, inside and outside.
Like any museum, there’s even a big play area for kids of all ages including a cockpit, kids can hop into and press every single button imaginable.
Ticket prices for the Kansas Aviation Museum are $9 for adults, $7 for Seniors 55+, $6 for children 4-12, and free for those 3 and under.
If you’re looking for a venue, you can rent out the huge space as well. Read more here.
