Urban Explorations

Urban Explorations are walking tours that allow participants a first-hand look at the area encompassing the Riverfront Legacy Master Plan.

Want to understand what is important to conference space for a city, or what happens behind the scenes when Music Theatre Wichita performs? What about a look at the river and how the east bank can connect to the west bank?

Come explore, learn and ask questions, or give comments about what you see and hear.

RSVP's are required and can be made at
