Old Cowtown Museum

Thank You! Your rating has been saved.

Cowtown is a living history museum where you'll experience life in the 1870s. Immerse yourself in a sampling of the sights, sounds and activities common to a Midwestern cattle town.

You'll experience the dramatic clash of Victorian ideals and economic realities as these competing forces strove to create an economically viable cattle town and a Victorian metropolis.

Try a wagon ride, hear the ring of the blacksmith anvil, and visit the humble home of the town's founder, Darius Munger. Be sure to stop at the home of the Marshall Murdock, who single-handedly promoted the town through his newspaper. After you smell what the farmer's wife is cooking for her family, try an ice cold sarsaparilla in the saloon...but be prepared to duck in the doorway as gunfire erupts in the streets!Wichita's historic Old Cowtown Museum is the perfect stage for the award-winning western musical entertainment of the Diamond W Wranglers. Named by Kansas Magazine as one of "Twenty Reasons We Love Kansas," they've performed in theaters from China and Germany to Carnegie Hall and Nashville. In Wichita they make their musical home right here in the intimate setting of Cowtown's Empire House Theater.
