Kansas Kids Connect

As part of our COVID-19 guidelines, we are limiting our building capacity to 25%. In addition, we will monitor Kansas Kids Connect so the capacity of this area is 25% or less.

Planting the seeds

Young children will discover the world around them and find out how country and city living are more alike than we may think.

Exhibit highlights

  • Plant a garden.
  • Fix a tractor.
  • Climb through layers of earth to see how wheat grows.
  • Go to a farmers market.
  • Crank water to fill a cloud and watch it rain.
  • Create a town.
  • Nestle inside a giant meadowlark nest.
  • And more!

Plus many more experiences that spark interest – even in the youngest of learners – in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM)!

For the security and safety of our young visitors, this exhibit is for ages 5 and under.

Included with general museum admission, free for members.
