The normal adult admission to the Wichita Art Museum is $7.00, but that isn’t anywhere near the cost of each visit.
That’s a little higher than the three previous years, but much lower than 2009, when the city reported a cost of $59.00 per visitor.
As can be seen in the nearby table (click it for a larger version), other city cultural attractions registered costs per visitor that are much higher than their admission costs. The Mid America All Indian Center has a per-visitor cost of $11.37. For The Wichita Historical Museum it’s $36.59. Cowtown’s cost per visit is $15.94.
So while each person who visits the art museum may or may not be willing to pay $48.62 for admission, someone is paying that.
