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.

I was here for the State Science Fair. The Gravity ball bearings at the front had lots of people mesmerized. Exhibits were amazing. One problem: in the castle, the ball tunnel kept getting blocked.

Exploration Place is great place for kids. There are plenty of hands on activities for children. We enjoyed the Super hero exhibit. You can take pictures with Batman, Ironman, and the Hulk. The wind tunnel was fun. The Kansas exhibit was neat. I liked the...More

No, really. It's cool...nice cold air-conditioning, so it makes a great activity for those scorching triple digit days. There is a big hall with exhibits that rotate out every 6 months or so; there is a superhero exhibit until January 2018. Then it will be...More

We attended a wedding here. It was very nice, but due to the irregularly shaped room, guests at some tables could not see the head table or dance floor.

This is a hands-on exhibit and very informative. Designed with kids in mind not adults. The views are stunning though and it does have a mini golf.
