Located inside what was once the Wichita Municipal Airport, the Kansas Aviation Museum in Wichita, Kansas is a really fascinating museum to explore. In addition to the various aircraft and artifacts on display, the building itself is a beautiful example of art deco architecture.
The Administration Building / Wichita Municipal Airport which now houses the Kansas Aviation Museum, was built during the 1930s when Wichita was both a strategic stopping point for flights crossing the United States and a significant hub for aircraft manufacturing. All of this activity earned Wichita, Kansas the nickname 'Air Capital of the World' in 1928 when 1 out of every 4 aircraft being built in the United States was coming out of Wichita.
