Closed – COVID-19

2020-05-30 - 2020-09-15 All day
Exploration Place
Exploration Place, 300 N McLean Blvd, Wichita, KS, United States

Effective immediately, Exploration Place will close as a precautionary measure to limit the spread of COVID-19.

We made this decision with heavy hearts, but with the health and safety of visitors, volunteers and staff as our top priority. Closing our doors temporarily will reduce the potential of transmission in the lively hands-on environment that Exploration Place is when filled with visitors.

For those who have booked spring break camps, birthday parties, field trips and facility rentals, we sincerely apologize for the disruption. Our staff will contact you to discuss rescheduling and refunds, or you can call/email the following:

  • Camps, birthday parties, field trips: 316.660.0620.
  • Facility rentals (weddings, proms, receptions, etc.) 316.660.0642.

We will assess plans for reopening our doors in coordination with public health authorities as the situation develops. Updates will be posted on our website and social media.

As always, thank you for your support of Exploration Place,

Adam Smith
President/ CEO
