Backstory and Context
Said to be an area frozen in the years of 1865-1880, the Old Cowtown Museum is open to all guests interested in history. Working directly with the city of Wichita, the museum houses over 10,000 pieces of American history, ranging from textiles, tools, art, and more. Cowtown has the distinction of being officially recognized by the American Alliance of Museums, the highest national recognition achievable by a museum in the United States.
