Hear a Carillon concert at the Historical Museum! A new carillon was recently installed as a gift to the City of Wichita- Government through The Arts Council from the Sam and Rie Bloomfield Foundation and a private donors’ group led by Eric Engstrom and Robert Bell, including Paul and Phyllis Buchanan, Michael Easton, Jerry Martin, Bill and Mary Lynn Oliver, and the Ross Foundation, Hal Ross, trustee. The new carillon, replacing the carillon that failed in 2018, continues the Bloomfield Foundation tradition of providing music for Downtown Wichita for over half a century.
The new carillon is located on the museum’s 5th floor, away from public view. The best place to listen will be from OUTSIDE the Museum and as always on Monday, the Museum will be closed.
