The Pizza Hut Museum is located in Wichita,
Kansas in the building which was the first Pizza Hut. The company was
started at the corner of Bluff and Kellogg in Wichita by Wichita State
University students (brothers Dan and Frank Carney) on June 15, 1958.
That building was moved onto campus in 1986 where it largely sat empty.
In 2017 it was moved to this new location and opened at the Pizza Hut Museum
on April 25, 2018.
The museum is curated by the Lowell
D. Holmes Museum of Anthropology and current Wichita State students
serve as docents at the small museum.
Museum visitors may park to the north of the museum in
the Marcus Welcome Center parking lot, or west of the museum by Eck Stadium.
The small museum is pretty interesting, but will probably take only 15-20
minutes for most people to visit.
