The Wichita-Sedgwick County Historical Museum is an attraction in the city of Wichita, Kansas. It started in 1919 by the efforts of the Sedgwick County Pioneer Society. They started collecting artifacts and, soon enough, displayed their items in the Sedgwick County Courthouse.

By 1938, the need of having a local public museum arose. It was met by the collections of the Pioneer Society. By 1947, the museum got the name Wichita Historical Museum Association. They then moved to Mrs. Cyrus M. Beachy?s estate in 1955.

The Wichita-Sedgwick County Historical Museum relocated once again to their current location, in the Old City Hall, in 1981. The 1892 structure is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, it used to house all the city offices.
