History

Dr. Jon and Lorna Kardatzke founded the Museum of World Treasures as a nonprofit organization in 2001 at the Garvey Center in downtown Wichita, Kansas. About two years later – due to tremendous growth – the Museum relocated to the well known "Farm & Art Market" building in Old Town. The building is located just east of downtown and is a converted former paper warehouse. Old Town offers a vibrant mix of restaurants, shops, clubs, and attractions in central Wichita. While the Museum of World Treasures is still considered young, it is the number one rated museum in Wichita on TripAdvisor.
