Positive traveler feedback earns Cowtown TripAdvisor Award
Old Cowtown Museum has been recognized for its hospitality excellence with a Certificate of Excellence Award from TripAdvisor. The award is only given to businesses that consistently achieve outstanding traveler reviews on TripAdvisor, the world’s largest travel website. Only 10 percent of worldwide businesses listed on TripAdvisor receive this award. Last year, Cowtown welcomed nearly 50,000 visitors to its grounds. The Museum maintains a “four” traveler rating on TripAdvisor.
To qualify for a Certificate of Excellence, businesses must:
• Be listed on TripAdvisor for at least 12 months;
• Maintain an overall traveler rating of four or higher, out of a possible five;
• Meet additional criteria that include the volume of reviews received within the last 12 months.
“Cowtown is pleased to receive a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence,” said Cowtown Director David Flask. “We strive to offer our visitors a memorable experience. This honor is evidence that our hard work is translating into positive reviews on TripAdvisor.”
TripAdvisor branded sites make up the largest travel community in the world, with more than 200 million unique monthly visitors and more than 100 million reviews and opinions. The sites operate in 30 countries worldwide.
Established in 1952, Cowtown is one of the oldest living-history museums in the Midwest. The Museum preserves our community’s history by immersing visitors in experiences that represent life in Wichita from 1865 to 1880. Cowtown has the distinction of being accredited by the American Alliance of Museums. This is the highest national recognition achievable by a museum that recognizes high standards in individual museums and ensures they continue to uphold public trust. Only 4 percent of the nation’s estimated 17,500 museums are accredited. The City of Wichita works in partnership with the Historic Wichita Cowtown board to enhance and further the Museum and its mission.
