Visitor Reviews

“This place was absolutely amazing. So much for children and adults to do and learn!”

Ryan Yungeberg

"I have been to the Exploration Place several times over the years when various family members come to visit. It NEVER disappoints! The Dome Theater is a great twist on immersive film watching and the exhibits range from Aerospace, Health Habits to Kansas geography and history. This doesn't even factor in the traveling exhibits which has covered superheroes to world record holders. This place has your kids covered for all ages and allows with a lot of interaction. Can't forget that Arkansas River view either!"

Brandon Williams

“We came from Manitoba, Canada. Loved it here! We brought six kids, and they all had a blast. Love how hands-on it is, and the exhibits are very well done! Would totally do this again! Thank you for an awesome time!”

Mindy Reimer

“I have been a visitor since my son was a small boy. We had countless trips under our belt, and now he is just a semester away from his Civil Engineering degree. The only credit I deserve is instilling a desire to understand mechanisms by nurturing curiosity. Exploration Place is priceless, [expanding] the minds of our children beyond what any parent can teach or even conceive.”
