Pizza Hut Museum

So what if it’s cold outside?

Wichita has plenty of indoor museums to explore. The most recent addition is housed in the first Pizza Hut, which was opened by Wichitans Dan and Frank Carney in 1958 after borrowing $600 from their mother. 

The 500-square-foot building, which was moved to the Wichita State campus (the Carneys are alumni)  from its original location at Kellogg and Bluff in 1986, is filled with memorabilia and artifacts as well as Interactive features and early TV commercials. The museum is located south of Marcus Welcome Center. Admission is free; check for hours.
