Tkinter is easier to use, as it is standard with Python. So long as you have
Tk/Tcl installed on your computer, Tkinter should work fine.

However, Tkinter probably looks a bit more old fashioned.

wxPython probably looks a bit more modern and may be a bit more powerful,
but it will require a large extra library. It's also a lot harder to learn
to use wxPython unless you are comfortable with C++ programming.

Have you seen this?
