The Wichita section was very fortunate to get a private tour of the Wichita Historic Museum.  Twelve members were able wander all around the museum before it officially opened for the day.  The museum is located in the old city courthouse which was built in 1892.  Among the many interesting displays was the Jones 6 automobile which was built here in Wichita.  The story of how it was placed on the 4th floor of the museum is also fascinating.  Sticking to the car theme there also happened to be a temporary installation of pedal cars.  The detailing on these old toy cars was completely unexpected.  After perusing all four floors of the museum, the group then headed out to our favorite German restaurant, Prost, to enjoy some fine food and beverages.
