The Old Cowtown Museum

Fodor's Review

In the heart of Wichita's museum district along the Arkansas River, this is a re-created 19th-century town, where historic reenactments include a trader's cabin staffed by buffalo hunters and cowboy stories at the Drovers Camp. There's a residential street where early settlers established homes such as the Marshall W. Murdock house, with its cast-iron fence and flower beds, which really bring this bygone era to life. On the 5-acre DeVore Farm, animals are milked and fed

as they would have been on an 1880s farm.
