There isn't much reason to go here. The building is not interesting and there are no displays or anything to do. About all you can do is say you were there.

Located on the campus of Wichita State University, this humble building is were the Pizza Hut phenomenon had begun. Smaller than one might imagine, it represents the beginnings well.

Not a whole lot to see. Just the original building that was moved from it's original location there is a small plaque that gives a brief history. It is on the WSU campus. They are planning on moving it again in a couple years
