"Wichita truly has something for everyone," Olio in Iowa. We couldn't have said it better ourselves! If you are planning a trip to Wichita, you have to experience the history of our city; from strong people that stood up for civil rights to those that looked towards the sky and said "lets fly" https://bit.ly/2Wngt6A

Part of Notre-Dame Cathedral Spire Collapses in Fire

Our hearts are with Paris as they work to extinguish the flames currently destroying the Notre-Dame Cathedral. What a devastating day for world and art history. 💔🇫🇷

Video filmed by onlookers showed flames and smoke billowing from the Paris building. The cathedral was evacuated, and the fire’s cause was not known.

Did you know that, although we usually call it #PresidentsDay, the official name of the holiday is "Washington's Birthday?" It was established in 1885 in his honor and proposals to rename the day have failed to garner much support. So #HappyBirthday 🎂 Mr. Washington, who would be 287 years old today!

We are open for our regular hours today, so bring the family by to see signatures and quotes from every one of our former presidents and learn a little bit about the fundamental years of the USA!

The history of Roman politics is extremely interesting.... And sometimes incredibly strange. Join us for our Drunk History Overnight! where we'll be sharing some of the most ludicrous stories of Rome (and more!)

For now, check out this video about Nero's final days.

In 68 AD, Galba, the governor of Spain rose up in revolt against the reign of Nero, and commanded his vast armies to march on Rome. Nero pinned his last hope...

7 New Year’s Eve Traditions That You Haven't Heard Of

Do you eat black-eyed peas on New Year's Eve? Do you make resolutions every year? What are your NYE traditions? 🍾🎊

Don't forget: We're open tomorrow for our regular hours! Museums are dim and quiet - a perfect place to recoup after a raucous night out. 😉☕️

Ringing in the new year and bidding adieu to the old one is a tradition that spans the globe. But it's not just all fireworks and glittery ball drops everywhere. Some celebrate by eating 12 grapes, while others smash fine china. If you're looking for a celebration that's a little off the beaten path...
