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.

There are many great hands on exhibits. My daughter (9 years old) enjoyed the medieval area and the science show the best. I thought the miniature village with a train going around it was really cool.

We used to be members and decided to cancel it because nothing ever changed. 5 years later, my feelings haven't changed. Much needed renovations and changes need to be made. Good to visit every 3-5 years or if they have special exhibits.

We had so much fun! I took my 4 year old daughter and we spent most of the day there. We never got board, everywhere We turned there was something wonderful to learn about or play with. They had stuff for every age! Highly recommend!
