History comes to life at the Old Cowtown Museum!
Wooden sidewalks, dusty streets and store-front facades are just a few of the old West attractions in this historic 24 acre open air living history museum.
The Museum was established in 1952, and is one of the oldest open-air history museums in central United States with 54 historic and re-created buildings, including a period farm and out-buildings. Cowtown is a combination of attraction, museum, living history site, and historic preservation project with 54 exhibit areas depicting life in Wichita and Sedgwick County during the period 1865 to 1880. There are historic buildings complete with period furnishings, art objects, clothing, industrial machinery, craft tools, and farm equipment. There is also a living collection of livestock including longhorn cattle, horses, and Dominique chickens.
