Overview

Delve into hundreds of interactive exhibits that stimulate the mind and teach about science, and that's only inside the main building. Outside there's a park where visitors can observe Kansas wildlife in a wetlands habitat and dig for archeological treasures inside a giant sandbox.

Too expensive for what is available. The kids have a great time, but you really only need to go once.

It is super fun for younger kids (less than 7-8 years old) to get hands on learning about science. The main exhibit is super cool with lots on brain games. You could spend an entire day playing with and solving the brain games. It is...More
