History, Beer and the History of Beer
Where can you find both the present and the past, the worlds of there and here, and a whole lot of beer? At the Museum of World Treasures Beer Culture event! With a booming craft beer scene, it’s pretty apparent that this city loves its local brews, and the Museum of World Treasures will embrace “Beer Culture” for the second year on April 21 from 6-9 p.m. Tickets are $29 and can be purchased here.
With local breweries including The Hopping Gnome, Wichita Brewing Company, River City Brewery, Third Place Brewing and Aero Plains Brewing on site at the museum, it’s going to be a fun night of history, beer, and the history of beer!
“We offer an historic treatment of both ancient and more historic, recent cultures. They all drank beer. During this event, we will tell people about that history,” said the Museum’s Chief Development Officer, Lon Smith.
Guests will have the opportunity to try a variety of locally-crafted brews while they learn about the history of beer. In addition, all of the museum’s exhibits will be open to guests, so they can tour the museum’s vast and diverse collection, mingle with other guests, and even play a few board games if they wish. If that’s not enough, it’s for a great cause.
“This is a special event for the Museum of World Treasures. Any net proceeds will go to help us more fully achieve our mission,” Smith said.
That mission, of course, is to provide a gateway to the past that educates, entertains and inspires lifelong learning.

About the Museum of World Treasures
The Museum of World Treasures was founded in 2001, opening in the Garvey Center downtown. Relocating two years later to its current location at 835 East 1st St., the Museum of World Treasures stands in the heart of Wichita’s Old Town Square. With three levels filled with exhibits from different time periods and cultural backgrounds, the Museum of World Treasures is one of the most interesting and exciting museums in the state of Kansas.
Upon arrival, you’ll be greeted by Ivan, the museum’s massive T-Rex, and a few of his dinosaur friends. You’ll also find two Egyptian mummies, an expansive military history exhibit, Hall of American Presidents, European Hall of Royalty, Children’s Activity Center and much more. The Museum of World Treasures is open daily except Christmas, Thanksgiving, Easter, and the last Saturday in July for the annual fundraiser.
