The Living Room


The Living Room is open for art exploration

One of the most active spaces at the Wichita Art Museum, the Living Room is a space to relax, explore new art ideas and activities, read a book, attend a Saturday ArtVenture, or one of our special programs. This room extends and sparks fun learning opportunities while visiting WAM, very much like a creative maker space. The interactive nature and ability for groups to engage together—whether friends on an outing or multi-generational family—mean that visitors have quality time together. These experiences make the Living Room so essential to WAM’s mission to “bring people, ideas, and American art together to enrich lives and build community.”

The Living Room was reimagined and redesigned in 2020. With new vibrant and fun furniture and wall displays that encourage interaction with art, WAM welcomes visitors of all ages to explore the Living Room. Every Saturday, a museum educator greets visitors in the Living Room and guides them in unique activities and art explorations.

Join us for art explorations!

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, hands-on art activities have been discontinued in the Living Room and touch-free activities are available. WAM looks to the future when we can launch all the great components—including hands-on, make it-take it art activities—to guide visitors and family groups to explore our collection of outstanding American art. Facial covering is required for all visitors, except infants and children in a stroller.
