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.

Exploration place has a great variety of exhibits that appeal to kids of all ages and adults. The activities help understand the "why" of a lot of scientific events or phenomena. Great place to spend time on an outing. Don't miss it.

This place has something for everyone. The kids enjoyed the super hero room while I liked the nostalgic exhibits. That is a temporary exhibit, so hurry. The castle is always great fun for the kids with costumes, puppets, and lots of props.
