The Spirit of Wichita

“The Spirit of Wichita” examines our local history during the early 20th Century, from 1912 to 1939. This long-term exhibit explores the aircraft industry, the oil industry, the Great Depression, the Dust Bowl, the World War I, the period’s cultural arts, entertainment and technology. Capture the spirit of Wichita through entrepreneurs … the oil barons, the merchants, and a group of courageous and creative aviation pioneers, like Clyde Cessna, Walter Beech & Lloyd Stearman who charted a new course for Wichita’s future.  You’ll hear stories of the 1930s dust storms … Share in the city’s pride at the launch of the USS Wichita…and relive the nightlife at Gage Brewer’s Shadowland Dance Club.
